The school's office manager Jackie Alexander told the girl on behalf of her new mom, Jennifer Fisher. Alexander said Butterfield visits her desk every day. She knew she would want to know right away because she had been so anxious.
Tannah Butterfield has waited more than two years to feel at home.
Security cameras captured that moment on October 2 with Butterfield embracing and hanging onto Alexander. "She simply held me more tightly and more tightly and I exploited that".
"I was overjoyed and humbled", Alexander told 1010 WINS about being able to tell the family such incredible news.
"My heart was so happy", she said. "It was like 'ah!' I was like screaming", Tannah said.
Cook County Board to dump Soda Tax for their political health
Almost 150 people have registered to speak at the Tuesday meeting, which could make the event last for hours. The Cook County Board is going to repeal the repugnant and wildly unpopular "Toni Tax" on sweetened drinks.
"They're just caring, loving, they take really good care of me", she said. In 12 years at this activity, this is by a wide margin my best minute ever!
A security camera captured Tannah's reaction, and the video was uploaded to social media. To tell a little girl that she gets her family forever takes the cake.
Tannah discloses to KUTV that she was so glad the selection was last that she couldn't relinquish Miss Jackie.
Alexander shared the video on Instagram, writing, "This is pure testament that in a world full of turmoil and strife, there is still light and joy to be found in little everyday moments".
