How can I filter this listview and keep my selections?

So I've got the following code setup to present a list of items that are imported from an XML file. The user makes selections and then exports their choices to XML. Selecting multiple lines works fine, but if the filter at the top is used, it will uncheck all the existing selections. Not sure if I need to filter it differently or if there's a property that will hold those values. The script is PowerShell and has a XAML file as well.

Powershell search function (filter):
$syncHash.WPFtb_Search.Add_TextChanged( { $syncHash.WPFlv_xml.ItemsSource = $arr.Where( { $_.Acc_Unit -like "*$($syncHash.WPFtb_search.Text)*" } ) } )

XAML:
