L. LOUDERMILK, Minors.
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
October 30, 1998
Antrim Juvenile Court
LC No. 00-003297 NA
Before: Young Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from the juvenile court order terminating his parental
rights to the minor children under MCL 712A.19b(3)(b)(ii), (g), (h) and (j); MSA
27.3178(598.19b)(3)(b)(ii), (g), (h) and (j). We affirm.
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination under
§§ 19b(3)(g) and (h) were established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974; In re Miller,
433 Mich 331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989). Moreover, respondent-appellant failed to show that
termination of his parental rights was clearly not in the children’s best interests. MCL 712A.19b(5);
MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re 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
