The news of a little girl finding out that her and her siblings had officially been adopted was captured on video and has gone viral.

The office manager at her school, Jackie Alexander, delivered the good news and her heartwarming reaction was caught on tape by the security cameras.

Tannah's adoptive mother called the school and asked the school's office manager Jackie Alexander to tell Tannah the news.

"It's been hard to watch them fight this emotional battle." said Alexander in an Instagram post. "She just held me tighter and tighter and I took advantage of that. She knew (Tannah) would want to know right away because she had been so anxious", Alexander wrote. In 12 years at this activity, this is by a wide margin my best minute ever!

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

"They're just caring, loving, they take really good care of me", she said. "Thank heavens her mom doesn't mind that I kissed her a million times, and a million more after the film cuts off".

"She's easy to cling to", Butterfield told CBS-affiliate KUTV. "I did not expect that from Tannah". "My heart was so happy, it was like, 'Ahhh!' It was screaming".

"We just feel like we're ordinary people that are taking care of three children that we love and want to be part of our family", she said.
