Zachary was removed from his biological mother when he was about three months old. The foster care parent with whom Zachary was placed adopted him, and for a while he reportedly did well and was known to be healthy. Then his adoptive mother withdrew him from school and insisted on homeschooling him. Zachary all but disappeared.
It's not an exaggeration to say that Zachary was tortured. Thankfully, his story didn't end there.
Because one concerned person recognized the signs of abuse and called a hotline ... because investigators got involved and discovered the truth ... and because Childhelp was there to fast-track intervention and treatment, Zachary didn't become a statistic.
