Arizona Officer Adopts Little Girl He Connected With on Welfare Check
When Lt. Brian Zach went to work one day 4 years ago, he had no idea he was going to meet a little girl who would end up becoming his adopted daughter. The day started out normal enough. He was just going to a routine welfare check, but what he discovered forever changed his life.
When Zach arrived for the welfare check, he met a little 2-year-old girl named Kayla. She was clearly a victim of child abuse. Zach explained, “She had a skull fracture, brain bleed and dislocated elbow. My heart felt for this little girl who was covered in bruises. She had a very strong spirit about her.”
Zach did much more than simply remove Kayla from the child abuse situation. He actually volunteered to let Kayla live with him as a foster care placement; however, he didn’t think she would be with him for very long. He said, “They said it would only be a couple weeks to a month until they could find a placement home for her.”

Adopting Kayla has made a big impact on Zach’s life. Now he plans to foster other children. Who knows. Maybe he’ll end up adopting more children as well.
