During a welfare check, a cop consoles a toddler, and two years later, he becomes her father.

“She was just the prettiest little baby who tugged at my heart right away.”

Officers do everything they can to save lives and assist people. They go above and above their responsibilities to ensure the safety of those in their care.

Lt. Brian Zach has been haunted by thoughts of a 13-month-old victim he could not save his entire life.

Although the tragedy occurred in 2011, the memories felt as if they happened yesterday. That sensation fueled his desire to improve his performance at work.

Lt. Brian received a call concerning the case of a 2-year-old girl while working a night shift.

Kaila was the one. Because of her significant bruises and injuries, she’d been rescued and reported.

Lt. Brian rushed to the child’s home as soon as he received the call.

He spent hours consoling the child there. They sat down to watch “Wreck-It Ralph” and color together.

The child touched Lt. Brian’s heart at that very time. He said in an interview with People:

“She was the sweetest little kid who tugged at my heartstrings right away.” She would take my hand in hers and place it on her lap, where she would hold it and pet it.”

Kaila was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The police officer devised a strategy to transport her home while she was there. He informed his wife about Kaila as soon as he returned home. He emphasized his desire to bring her home and integrate her into their family.

It wasn’t a simple task.

They needed to make sure that donating their house to the little girl wouldn’t jeopardize their criminal case. Lt. Brian’s children were also extremely cautious.

They were careful not to become too attached to Kaila because they didn’t know if she would be accepted into the family. They were well aware that they would be crushed if she were taken from them. As a result, they merely tried to spend each week with her as best they could.

Kaila’s birth parents were eventually decided not to be the best individuals to care for her.

This allowed Lt. Brian’s family to begin the process of adopting her.

He said in the same interview:

“We realised that this girl needed love and a family when her family didn’t step up or pass the standards to be a placement for her.”

The couple legally adopted Kaila on August 18, 2020.

Many individuals were impressed by Lt. Brian’s actions.

Even the Kingman Police Department’s chief of police, Rusty Cooper, felt the same way. He said in an interview with Good Morning America:

“Lt. Brian Zach’s dedication to public safety is reflected in his devotion to and love for Kaila. Brian and Cierra are both fantastic parents. They are dedicated to helping others and to a cause larger than themselves. Brian and his family are valued members of the Kingman Police Department, and we are proud of them.”
