Tannah will be adopted by Jen and Jeff Fisher, who have been her foster parents for two years.

Tannah Butterfield, a sixth-grader at American Heritage school in South Jordan, Utah, jumped up and down when the school's office manager told her she's going to be adopted. "My heart was so happy", she said. "It was like, screaming".

Tannah was so happy that she wouldn't let go of Miss Jackie. She knew she would want to know right away because she had been so anxious.

Tannah, 11, along with her brother Teagun, 6, and sister Tallie, 2, will be part of their own "forever family" later this fall.

'To tell a little girl that she gets her family forever takes the cake.

"She's just one that I've made a little bond with and it's lasted", Alexander said.

"She just kept holding me tight, she kept holding me tighter and tighter", Alexander said.

Posting the video on Instagram, a day after the Las Vegas massacre, Jackie wrote that the world needed some more "light and joy". "We did the right thing", she said. "My husband and I had a lot of infertility problems and we had wanted more". "And just being together and I know that... like having someone to actually love me". "I can't even describe that hug", she said.

Tannah hopes when people watch her video, they will remember that if you wish for something long enough, it may just come true.

It is the lovely moment being shared around the world.

Tannah told KUTV the video captured "the best thing that's ever happened to me".

The average age of a child awaiting adoption is around seven years, and they usually spend around three years in foster care.
