11-year-old girl's adoption surprise caught on camera

Upon hearing the news from Jackie Alexander, a school official, Tannah leaps into her arms for a hug that never seems to end.

She says the girl's new mom called her on October 2 to tell her they finally were going to be able to adopt the children and asked her to deliver the news immediately. "She knew she would want to know right away because she had been so anxious", Alexander wrote in a social media post.

Tannah Butterfield has waited more than two years to feel at home.

In a now-viral Instagram post, Alexander shared footage of the moment caught by the school's security cameras.

"I cry as I type this", she added.

Alexander, an employee at American Heritage of South Jordan in Utah, said she's known Tannah, a sixth-grade student, for almost two years.

"I'm looking forward to having family time and spending all our lives together", said Butterfield. In 12 years at this activity, this is by a wide margin my best minute ever!

Tannah was so happy that she wouldn't let go of Miss Jackie.

To tell a young lady that she gets her family always takes the cake.

"They're just caring, loving, they take really good care of me", she said.

"She's easy to cling to", Butterfield told CBS-affiliate KUTV. "We didn't all know it was going to happen like that". "It's not something I get to do every day".
