Problem converting eConnect VB sample to C#

Hello.  First, I wanted to say great site!

I'm just getting started with eConnect and am trying to work through the examples in the eConnect Programmer's Guide and Reference.  Specifically, I am working on the eConnectOut Serialization Example.  I am able to get it working if I create a VB project, but cannot get it to work for C# (I only know C#).  I have been able to convert pretty much the entire code to C# except for the 'ReDim Preserve' statement.  Since there isn't an equivalent statement in C#, I have no idea how to go about converting it from VB.  I have googled it and worked through many suggestions on how to convert it without any luck.  It's probably something simple, but I cannot figure it out and was hoping someone here could shed a little insight.  Any help or information you could provide would be extremely helpful.  I will post the entire code below for your reference, but I will highlight the section I am having trouble with.  Thank you so much in advance!
