Their aunt, Donna Bills, is now caring for the children, but someone broke into their old house and stole their belongings, $6,000 worth of TV and electronic items -- gifts from their mother the last Christmas she was alive.
"It's very hard, but I can't always let out my feelings because the children are always right there with me," Bills says. "I try so hard to hold it in, but sometimes I can't do it. I just can't do it."
The volunteers who are building the addition to the house desperately need help -- roofers, plumbers, stonemasons -- anyone who can lend a hand. There is also a fund set up to help the children. Donations can be made in the Taylor Family name at the BB&T Bank in Henderson.
