STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of KELLEY SHARELL SULLIVAN and SHARNITA LYNNETTE LITTLE, Minors. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED November 6, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 206716 Wayne Juvenile Court LC No. 91-296423 MARCELLA MIRANDA LITTLE, Respondent-Appellant, and KEVIN LAMONT SULLIVAN and LAMONT MADISON, 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 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 at least one statutory ground for termination, specifically § 19b(3)(g), was 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). In re Hall-Smith, supra at 473. Thus, the juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent-appellant’s parental rights to the minor children. Id. -1­ Affirmed. /s/ Robert P.
