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.

Fisher and her husband will adopt Tannah after being her foster parents for two years.

Teacher Jackie Alexander had the happy job of breaking the news to Tannah Butterfield, after she received a phone call to inform her that the girl's foster parents had won the case to adopt her, as well as two other children.

Tannah was so happy she couldn't let go of Miss Jackie. "She knew (Tannah) would want to know right away because she had been so anxious", Alexander wrote. She told KSL she wanted to share the video of Tannah to show that there's still positivity in the world. To tell a little girl she gets her family forever takes the cake. "It was like 'Ah!' I was like screaming", Tannah remembered.

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

"All that excitement, joy and happiness that you see in Tannah went right through to me", Alexander told NBC News.
