Jackie Alexander had some important news to tell one of her school’s students, a foster child named Tannah Butterfield. And as she did, the moment was caught on C.C.T.V. Then when the footage was shared online, the girl’s reaction soon went viral – and left viewers in tears.
Tannah attends Utah’s American Heritage School of South Jordon. In October 2017, she was 11 years old and in the sixth grade. And as a foster child, she had lived with the Fisher family for two years.
Jen Fisher, along with her husband, Jeff, also took in Tannah’s brother Teagun, now seven, and three-year-old sister Tallie. And they also have two biological children – Macy 11, and Aiden, 14. The couple had wanted to have more kids but struggled to conceive a third child naturally.
