FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED October 30, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v TONY PETRICE JONES, a/k/a TONI PATRICA JONES, No. 208288 Wayne Juvenile Court LC No. 89-278129 Respondent-Appellant, and RUDOLPH WHITE, SR., RODNEY JOINTER and GLENN FORD, Respondents. Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ. MEMORANDUM. Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from a juvenile court order terminating her parental rights to the minor children pursuant to MCR 712A.19b(3)(c)(i) and (g); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i) and (g). We affirm. This case is being decided without oral argument pursuant to MCR 7.214(E). -1­ The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination were established by clear and convincing evidence. In re Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App 470, 472-473; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Further, respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental rights was clearly not in the children’s best interests. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5). Therefore, the juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent-appellant’s parental rights to the children. In re Hall-Smith, supra at 473. Affirmed. /s/ Robert P. Young, Jr. /s/ Myron H.
