STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of DALE SCHALK, JR., Minor. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED November 24, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 209452 Bay Juvenile Court LC No. 95-005406 NA DONNA SEVERY, Respondent-Appellant and DALE WESLEY SCHALK, 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 child under MCL 712A.19b(3)(g) and (i); MSA 27.3178(598.19b) (3)(g) and (i). 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; 445 NW2d 161 (1989). Further, respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental rights was clearly not in the child’s best interests. MCL 712A.19(b)(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re HallSmith, 222 Mich App 470, 472; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Thus, the juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent-appellant's parental rights to the child. Id. Affirmed. -1­ /s/ Robert P. Young, Jr. /s/ Myron H. Wahls /s/ Kathleen Jansen -2­
