Adoption surprise caught on camera. Matt O'Donnell reports during Action News at 4:30 a.m. on October 10, 2017.

A Utah girl became overjoyed when she learned she would be adopted and the moment was captured on camera.

Eleven-year-old Tannah Butterfield spent the last two years hoping a judge would make her foster parents her forever parents.

Her dream came true when the office manager at her school told her the good news last week.

"My heart was so happy. It was like 'ah!' It was like screaming," Butterfield said.

The officer manager posted the video which was shared across the internet.

Tannah's mom says she is grateful the security camera recorded the happy moment.
