11-year-old's touching reaction to adoption news captured on school's camera

11-year-old's ecstatic hug goes viral after she's told her adoption is approved

The office manager at her school, Jackie Alexander, delivered the good news and her heartwarming reaction was caught on tape by the security cameras.

Tannah Butterfield, a sixth-grader at American Heritage School in Utah, visits the staff at the school's office every day.

Year Six student Tannah Butterfield was given the happiest news of her life at school last Monday, and her reaction said it all.

"It's the biggest thing that ever happened to me", Tannah said.

"This is pure testament that in a world full of turmoil and strife, there is still light and joy to be found in little everyday moments".

Video of a young Utah girl's heartwarming moment is gaining national attention.

Miss Jackie told her that her adoption had been finalized. "I just kissed her up one side and down the other side".

Alexander says the adoption has been a long time coming for the family, who she says have been "fighting for as long as I can do not forget to adopt 3 of their foster children that attend our school".

Tannah's soon-to-be mother, Jennifer Fisher, says she's grateful the camera recorded the moment.

"I said, 'You get your forever family, honey, ' and then you see her jump into my arms", Alexander said. "A dear family I know has been fighting for as long as I can do not forget to adopt three of their foster children that attend our school".

The couple told ABC News the adoption will be finalised in November.

According to the study, more than 60 percent of kids who are never adopted will be in prison, homeless or deceased by the age of 19. "In 12 years at this job, this is by far my best moment ever!" she writes.
