COURT OF APPEALS
In the Matter of JESSE and AMANDA HANKINS,
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
November 6, 1998
Branch Juvenile Court
LC No. 84-000021
Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from the juvenile court order terminating her parental
rights to the minor children under MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i) and (g); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i)
and (g). We affirm.
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination were
established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974(I); 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.
