Emotional video captures moment 11-year-old girl learns she's been adopted

Emotional video captures moment 11-year-old girl learns she's been adopted”

She'd been wishing for two years that the judge would make her foster parents her forever parents, and that wish finally came true. But last week, the 11-year-old learned her adoption would be finalized, and, thanks to the internet, the world is celebrating with her.

Security cameras captured that moment on October 2 with Butterfield embracing and hanging onto Alexander. In 12 years at this job, this is by far my best moment ever!

On Oct. 2, Alexander received a phone call from Jen Fisher, Tannah's foster mom, and asked her to share the good news with Tannah that she and her husband, Jeff, would be officially adopting her.

Alexander thought the moment was so lovely that she got Fisher's permission and shared the video on social media.

Tannah was so happy that she wouldn't let go of Miss Jackie. Alexander's joy is palpable, too.

Jennifer Fisher told KSL that the video was a sweet surprise, and the internet's reaction to it was, too. The video has been viewed thousands of times since. "You get your forever family", said Alexander.

What's more, Alexander says she simply continued embracing her young companion.

"She's easy to cling to", Butterfield told CBS-affiliate KUTV. "It was like, 'ah, ' it was like screaming", Tannah said. "It's been really neat - and insane".
