STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS _____________________________________ In the Matter of ARSENIO ANTONIO CASTON, Minor. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED November 6, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v DEBRA ANN CASTON, No. 209935 Wayne Juvenile Court LC No. 95-330569 Respondent-Appellant. Before: Young Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ. MEMORANDUM. Respondent appeals as of right from the juvenile court order terminating her parental rights to the minor child under MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i), (g) and (j); MSA 27.3178(598.19b) (3)(c)(i), (g) and (j). We affirm. This case is being decided without oral argument pursuant to MCR 7.214(E). 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; In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989). Further, respondent failed to show that termination of her parental rights was clearly not in the child’s best interests. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re HallSmith, 222 Mich App 470, 472-473; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Thus, the juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent’s parental rights to the child. Id. Affirmed. /s/ Robert P. Young, Jr. /s/ Myron H. Wahls /s/ Kathleen Jansen
