In the Matter of JONATHAN SAVIN LAFLEUR,
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
July 17, 1998
Wayne Juvenile Court
LC No. 95-326693
MASEAN KRISTINA LAFLEUR,
Before: Murphy, P.J., and Young, Jr. and M. R. Smith*, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from a juvenile court order terminating her parental
rights to the minor child 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). Further, respondent-appellant 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
* Circuit judge, sitting on the Court of Appeals by assignment.
Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App 470, 472-473; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Thus, the juvenile court did not err
in terminating respondent-appellant’s parental rights to the child. Id.
