COURT OF APPEALS
In the Matter of SHARMIKA GLOVER, Minor.
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
July 17, 1998
Kent Juvenile Court
LC No. 90-013444 NA
Before: Murphy, P.J., and Young, Jr. and Michael R. Smith*, JJ.
Respondent appeals by application for delayed appeal granted a juvenile court order terminating
her parental rights to her daughter under MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i) and (g); MSA
27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i) and (g). 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). Petitioner clearly and convincingly established that respondent would be unable to
provide proper care and custody in a suitable home environment within a reasonable time considering
the age of the child. In re Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App 470, 472; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Further,
respondent failed to show that termination of her parental rights was clearly not in the child’s best
interests. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re Hall-Smith, supra, at 473.
