Tannah Butterfield’s foster parents have been trying to adopt her and her two siblings for years. Then, a security camera captured the moment earlier this week when the 11-year-old girl was told that they were finally being adopted.
The 11-year-old from South Jordan, Utah was in class when the school’s office manager Jackie Alexander got the call from Tannah’s foster mom that she was to be adopted.
“She asked me if I would be sure to tell her sweet girl when she came to my desk for her daily visit,” writes Alexander. “She knew she would want to know right away because she had been so worried.”
“It’s been hard to watch them fight this emotional battle. My love has grown for this family and I have learned so much from them as they have tried to remain positive despite many set backs.”
“In 12 years at this job, this is by far my best moment ever!! To tell a little girl that she gets her family forever takes the cake.”
“I felt like a million, jillion things just exploded in my heart,” said Tannah. “I felt so happy. This is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”
Tannah’s foster mom, Jennifer Fisher, hopes that after many years of struggling through the adoption process, the paperwork will be finalized within the month.
