STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of JASHAUNA JOHNSON and JUSHAN JOHNSON, Minors. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED July 14, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 203775 Muskegon Juvenile Court LC No. 95-022390 NA LATESA RAGLIN, Respondent-Appellant, and JUSHAN JOHNSON, Respondent. Before: Murphy, P.J., and Young, Jr. and M. R. Smith*, JJ. MEMORANDUM. Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from a juvenile court order terminating her parental rights to her children under MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i), (g) and (j); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i), (g) and (j). We affirm. The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination were established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974(I); In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989). Additionally, because respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental rights was clearly not in the best interests of the children, the juvenile court did not err in terminating her parental rights. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178 (598.19b)(5).
