STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of RICHARD HARRELL III and MINYETTA FULTON, Minors. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED November 6, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 207528 Wayne Juvenile Court LC No. 90-289883 CONSTANCE ELAINE HARRELL, Respondent-Appellant, and KENNETH FULTON, Respondent. 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 the statutory ground for termination under § 19b(3)(c)(i) was established by clear and convincing evidence. In re Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App 470, 472-473; 564 NW2d 156 (1997); In re Vasquez, 199 Mich App 44, 51-52; 501 NW2d 231 (1993). Further, because respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental rights was clearly not in the children’s best interests, the juvenile court did not err in terminating those rights. In re HallSmith, supra. -1­ Affirmed. /s/ Robert P. Young, Jr. /s/ Myron H. Wahls /s/ Kathleen Jansen -2­
