Security cameras at a South Jordan, Utah school captured the life-changing moment when 11-year-old Tannah Butterfield learned she was going to be adopted.

After two years of anticipation, Tannah's dream was finally answered after a judge approved adoption requests for her and her two younger siblings, reported KUTV. "My heart was so happy. It was like, screaming".

Alexander, who had been feeling gloomy that day after hearing of the mass shooting in Las Vegas the night before, decided Tannah's reaction was so handsome, she had to share it.

Alexander also writes that she knows the family and has watched them fight to adopt three foster children that attend the school where she works.

Tannah, 11, along with her brother Teagun, 6, and sister Tallie, 2, will be part of their own "forever family" later this fall. To tell a little girl that she gets her family forever takes the cake.


The sixth grader jumped into Alexander's arms and gave her the biggest hug.

There are more than 100,000 children living in foster care, just hoping for loving, forever families. "There's joy that happens every day", she said.

Alexander explained she ended up becoming the bearer of the good news after receiving a phone call earlier in the day from Tannah's new mom, Jen Fisher, who asked her to share the news with the girl.

It is the handsome moment being shared around the world.

"I just needed to let people know there's a lot going on in the world, and there's a lot of sadness that we see, but you know what?" Tannah's moment of unbridled joy quickly turned that around.
