MEGAN BASHAM, HOST: This one’ll warm your heart. An early Christmas.
This story began two years ago. Brian Zach is a police lieutenant who found little 2-year-old Kaila during a welfare check. Zach said she had marks and injuries that were clearly caused by abuse.
He spoke to KNXV news as little Kaila played on his lap.
ZACH: So I took care of her, took her back to the station and we watched Wreck It Ralph. (Kaila laughs)
Zach, already a father of two, said Kaila immediately stole his heart.
ZACH: When I came home that night, I told my wife about this little adorable girl that we got to meet, and I wanted to just bring her home.
Child Protective Services needed a temporary home for her. Zach and his wife happily said yes.
Two years later, the couple got news they’ve been waiting for ever since—their adoption was approved.
And the now 4-year-old Kaila says she couldn’t be happier.
KAILA: I love him. I love him so much.
A merry Christmas indeed!
It’s The World and Everything in It.
