Foreclosure 'Angel' Saves Woman's Home

(Oct. 27) -- A tearful Tracy Orr went to a Dallas auction to watch her foreclosed home get sold off to the highest bidder. But by the time the auction was over, she was looking forward to moving back in.
How did her fortunes change so dramatically? The credit belongs to Marilyn Mock, an auction attendee who was spurred into action by Orr's heartbreak. Mock bid on the home, even though she had never laid eyes on it, and when she won it, she said she'd let Orr move back in.[/color]

I'm still in shock," an emotional Orr told CNN on Monday.
Mock got the property for under $30,000. Why did she come to Orr's rescue?
"People need to help each other and that's all there is to it," she told WFAA-TV, which has the full story. You can see a video version via AOL Video.
Bloggers are extolling Mock's generosity. "It is so wonderful to see such random acts of kindness in these times of crisis and 'emotional foreclosures,'" says The Liberal Chronicles.
Little Pink Clubhouse wonders at the randomness, too: "Sometimes, one entertains angels unaware."
Orr is just one of many thousands of people who have lost their homes in foreclosure. More than 240,000 homes went into foreclosure from July through September alone. The Associated Press looks at the ongoing crisis and explains why the situation is going to be difficult to fix.
