The joyful embrace between a sixth-grader and employee at American Heritage School in Utah is being watched all over the world. CBS News affiliate KUTV-TV reports 11-year-old Tannah Butterfield says it's proof that dreams really can come true.

She was adopted along with her 6-year-old brother Teagun and 2-year-old sister Tallie.

I saw this at the same time some asshole started cutting onions :D  I can't help but feel like the woman kinda stole the adoptive mother's thunder. As the mom I would have preferred to tell her?  but yay anyway! :D

I had posted this one as well, glad for the kid.  It's nice that they would take in a child and make her their own, shame more people don't do that.

daegog I've heard adopting costs thousands of dollars, plus the amount of time it takes before adopters get anywhere with the process and red tape.
