A video of an 11-year-old girl's reaction to learning she will be adopted by her foster family went viral, according to KUTV-TV.

Jackie Alexander, with the American Heritage School, was given permission from the court to tell Tannah and her two siblings had officially found their forever home.

Tannah's joy is apparent in the video, where she leaps into Alexander's arms, kicking her legs up and down.

What's more, Alexander says she simply continued embracing her young companion. "She just held me tighter and tighter and I took advantage of that".

Alexander thought the moment was so attractive that she got Fisher's permission and shared the video on social media.

Jen Fisher of West Jordan, Utah, told ABC News that seeing Tannah's reaction on video was priceless.

Tannah spent the last two years wishing the judge would make her foster parents her forever parents. In 12 years at this job, this is by far my best moment ever!

"She's just one that I've made a little bond with and it's lasted", Alexander said. To tell a little girl that she gets her family forever takes the cake.

"I'm looking forward to having family time and spending all our lives together", said Butterfield. "My heart was so happy!"

"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.
