STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS __________________________________________ In the Matter of SADE GAINES, Minor. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED November 6, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v PENNY HOWLING, No. 210207 Macomb Juvenile Court LC No. 91-036251 NA Respondent-Appellant, and LOUIS GAINES, Respondent. Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ. MEMORANDUM. Respondent-appellant 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). Respondent-appellant challenges the termination of her parental rights under § 19b(3)(g) only. Because only one statutory ground is necessary to terminate parental rights and because respondent­ appellant does not challenge the termination of her parental rights under §§ 19b(3)(c)(i) and (j), respondent-appellant is not entitled to appellate relief.
