11-Year-Old Leaps Into School Employee’s Arms After Learning She’ll Be Adopted

It was one of the happiest moments in 11-year-old Tannah Butterfield’s life when she learned she was getting adopted.

“I felt like a million, jillion things just exploded in my heart,” she said. “I felt so happy. This is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

The moment she learned the good news was caught on surveillance video at her school in Utah.

She was seen leaping into the arms of the school administrator who delivered the message and giving her a big hug.
