November 6, 1998
ALICE JEAN NEWBORNE,
Wayne Juvenile Court
LC No. 87-264836
Before: Young Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals by delayed leave granted from the juvenile court orders
terminating her parental rights to Britney and Deynette under MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i), (g), (i) and (j);
MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i), (g), (i) and (j), and to Lovely under MCL 712A.19b(3)(g), (i) and
(j); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(g), (i) and (j). We affirm.
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination under
§§ 19b(3)(c)(i), (g) and (j) with respect to Britney and Deynette, and §§ 19b(3)(g), (i) and (j) with
respect to Lovely, were established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974; 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 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 children. Id.
