CCTV from the office showed Tannah launching into Ms Alexander's arms after learning she was finally being adopted. "She knew she would want to know right away because she had been so anxious", Alexander wrote in a social media post.

Tannah's mom, Jennifer Fisher, is grateful the school security camera recorded the moment. "A moment needed after waking up to another morning of devastating news on TV ... but a sweet reminder today that life can be and still is attractive in spite of it all". Tannah's moment of unbridled joy quickly turned that around.
