Ray Sabbatini, a man stricken with Multiple Sclerosis, is searching for his biological daughter with the help of E-bay. The reason Ray Sabbatini is doing this, is that he is also adopted and is using this online auction site to help find his biological daughter. Ray states "being adopted myself, I know what she must be going through, and probably has a lot of unanswered questions." Ray is a Multiple Sclerosis sufferer and was diagnosed over 6 years ago. Ray also is a single father of a 10 year old girl and is basically looking to reunite with another daughter he never even knew existed until just recently. Ray says, " I would love to get to know her, and hopefully she feels the same. Maybe just to see what she looks like, answer why she was given up for adoption, develop a relationship, and possibly give her some closure."

According to E-bay rules, something has to be sold, so Ray will be auctioning off pictures of himself and the biological mother Jill. Maybe the pictures will also have some resemblance of my daughter. Ray, being a MS sufferer is on a fixed income and due to the costs of hiring a detective agency and/or search agency, he thought that he would give this a try. Ray will be using the proceeds from the auction to help fund his search. Ray's daughter's adoption records are sealed and this has been a very frustrating journey for him so far. He is hoping this E-bay auction helps him on his quest to find the daughter he never knew he had.

Ray Sabbatini also lists some personal information about himself, the biological mother, daughter's date of birth, state of birth, where she was born, and possible name of his daughter and the couple that adopted her. Ray hopes that his biological daughter or the couple that adopted her might see the auction, Ray says, "God Willing!" This auction can be viewed at www.ebay.com with the heading "MS Sufferer Searching For His Daughter" and is E-bay item # 110430862184

Ray was recently contacted by an old girlfriend from 20 years ago, Jill Mogul (the biological mother). She was looking for Ray for years and eventually found him on Facebook. "The story was a big shock for me and it still hasn't sunk in yet", says Ray. The birth mother, Jill Mogul, is also interested in reuniting with her daughter. Since Ray heard the news, he has been working as a ‘team' with Jill to make this dream a reality. Their daughter would be 19 years old now. "We would leave it up to her whether she would want to contact us with absolutely no pressure" says Ray and Jill. It just so happens that Jill Mogul, the birth mother, is also adopted. She now has a daughter and a son.

Ray Sabbatini and Jill Mogul will also be posting this on Facebook and my space, in hopes their daughter has an account with them. "What 19 year old girl doesn't have a My space or Facebook account, not many", states Ray. "We will leave her the option of calling us, writing us, or even contacting us directly through my website, like I said, absolutely no pressure and she can contact us anonymously."

Ray, having MS, has a "no quit" attitude and now states, "we are on a mission, we've already missed 19 years and do not want to miss one more day!"
