"They're just caring, loving, they take really good care of me", she said.

The school's security camera captured Tannah's precious reaction.

Walt Disney's Cinderella may have been the first to say it, but today, 11-year-old Tannah Butterfield from Utah is actually living it.

Alexander also writes that she knows the family and has watched them fight to adopt three foster children that attend the school where she works. "You get your forever family", said Alexander.

Ms Fisher and her husband will adopt Tannah after fostering her for two years.

In the post, Alexander explained that she received a call from Tannah's adoptive mother, Jennifer Fisher, asking Alexander to share the good news with Tannah as soon as she could.

Tannah discloses to KUTV that she was so glad the selection was last that she couldn't relinquish Miss Jackie.

Miss Jackie told her that her adoption had been finalized. "It was like 'ah!' I was like screaming", Tannah said. "You get your forever family", Jackie Alexander said. I can't even describe that hug ... and thank heavens her mom doesn't mind that I kissed her a million times, and a million more after the film cuts off.

Tannah was so excited she immediately jumped on her friend and wrapped her arms and legs around in her delight.

The young Utah student said her "heart was so happy" when she learned of the news.

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