STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of SHARMIKA GLOVER, Minor. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED July 17, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 204587 Kent Juvenile Court LC No. 90-013444 NA JANICE GLOVER, Respondent-Appellant. Before: Murphy, P.J., and Young, Jr. and Michael R. Smith*, JJ. MEMORANDUM. 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. Affirmed. /s/ William B. Murphy /s/ Robert P. Young, Jr. /s/ Michael R.
