STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of DESHAWN MCNEAL, Minor. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED November 20, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 208253 Wayne Juvenile Court LC No. 93-308789 MONIQUE ROSHAWN MCNEAL, Respondent-Appellant, and GARY PATTERSON YOUNG, Respondent. Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ. MEMORANDUM. Respondent-appellant appeals as of right the juvenile court’s order terminating her parental rights to the minor child pursuant to MCL 712A.19b(3)(b)(ii), (c)(i), (g) and (j); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(b)(ii), (c)(i), (g) and (j). 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 Conley, 216 Mich App 41, 42; 549 NW2d 353 (1996). Further, respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental rights is clearly not in the best interests of the child. 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. In re Hall-Smith, supra. -1­ Affirmed. /s/ Robert P. Young, Jr. /s/ Myron H. Wahls /s/ Kathleen Jansen -2­
