STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of MONTRICE LATRA DAVENPORT, Minor. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED July 21, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 205505 Wayne Juvenile Court LC No. 96-340310 CLOVER LAUICE DAVENPORT, Respondent-Appellant. Before: Murphy, P.J., and Young, Jr. and Michael R. Smith*, JJ. MEMORANDUM. Respondent appeals by delayed leave granted from the juvenile court order terminating her parental rights to the minor child under MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i), (g), (h) and (j); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i), (g), (h) 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). Furthermore, 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 HallSmith, 222 Mich App 470, 472-473; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Thus, the juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent’s parental rights. Affirmed. /s/ William B. Murphy /s/ Robert P. Young, Jr. /s/ Michael R. Smith * Circuit judge, sitting on the Court of Appeals by assignment. -1­ -2­
