There is a high degree of unpredictability in life; you never truly know what fate has in store for you, and occasionally life will take you completely by surprise with what can take place. This was the situation that Brian Zach found himself in.
Something happened to police officer Brian Zach when he was on a routine night call checking on a property that altered the course of his life irrevocably.
Brian Zach and His Story of Adoption
It was the month of March 2018, and Sergeant Brian Zach and the police under his command were out on patrol when they received a request to check out a property. The things that they discovered there were going to have a dramatic impact on Sergeant Brian Zach’s life. That was the residence in which a young girl by the name of Kaila, who was only four years old at the time, and her carers, who were actively mistreating and assaulting her, were residing.
Her caregivers were taken into custody, and Brian Zach spent the entire night attempting to reassure the youngster, who was clearly distressed. They did things that any parent would do with their children, such as coloring together and munching, during their time together.
After everything that Kaila had been through, Brian Zach attempted to make her feel as good as she could by simply talking to her and offering her his hand to hold. As soon as the detective who was in charge of the investigation arrived, they took Kaila to the hospital so that doctors there could assess both her physical and mental state.
When Brian Zach arrived back to his house, he told his wife Cierra what had occurred, and she subsequently remarked that when he did so, he stated something to the effect of, “He shows there, he’s like, ‘I got to hang out with the cutest young girl. She was simply incredible’”
In spite of the fact that Cierra and Brian Zach already had two other children of their own, they made the decision to become Kaila’s foster parents out of a sense of altruism when the child protective services were unable to find an immediate home for her.
When young Kaila arrived at their house, the only item she brought with her was a sippy cup and a bag full of clothes that were much too big for her. She had nothing else. The poor little baby was terrified, and she was in physical pain as well because her harsh carers had caused her to endure several injuries.
Once a member of Brian and Cierra’s household, Kaila moved in with her foster family quite quickly and began to feel at ease and form bonds with them. She started referring to Cierra as “mom” or “mommy” almost quickly, however it took her a little bit more time to start referring to Brian as “dad.”
Brian made light of the situation by saying in jest, “I was ‘man’ for a week or two, and then when she began preschool, she realized who dad was.”
The Zachs have developed strong feelings of affection for young Kaila, and the possibility that they will have to spend time apart from her causes them to experience feelings of insecurity and fear. According to what Brian had to say about the situation, “We lived each week not knowing if she was going to go back to her biological parents or how long we were going to have her.”
They expressed a strong desire for Kaila to become a part of their family in a long-term capacity. Brian shared that “our purpose was to love and care for this young baby for as long as it happened,” and he explained that this was their intention. And on August 13, their hope came true when they were allowed to legally adopt Kaila. The adoption ceremony took place in Lake Havasu City at the Mohave County Superior Court.
Because of the neglect and violence she had suffered at the hands of her abusers, Kaila initially was unable to talk. Gradually, however, she began to fully integrate herself into Zach’s household. She began attending preschool on a regular basis and even began to speak out. The young lady was doing really well now!
This narrative, it is my sincere goal, will serve as an example for those families who are on the fence about fostering children. Cierra’s own comments will serve as a fitting conclusion to this chapter: “I would certainly recommend people to do it because there are so many kids who need boys even if it’s just for a brief length of time you can have such a difference,” she said.
