STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS _____________________________________ In the Matter of BRITNEY ESTELLE NEWBORNE, DEYNETTE SILVER NEWBORNE and LOVELY ANN MARIE EVERSON, Minors. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED November 6, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v ALICE JEAN NEWBORNE, No. 206899 Wayne Juvenile Court LC No. 87-264836 Respondent-Appellant, and DOUGLAS HILL, Respondent. Before: Young Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ. MEMORANDUM. 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. Affirmed. /s/ Robert P. Young, Jr. /s/ Myron H. Wahls /s/ Kathleen Jansen -2­
