STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of JACOB MCTEVIA, Minor. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED November 24, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 210884 St. Clair Juvenile Court LC No. 94-000107 JO ELLEN MCTEVIA, Respondent-Appellant, and MICHAEL MCTEVIA, 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 pursuant to 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. MCL 5.974(I); In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989); In re Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App 470; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Further, respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental rights was clearly not in the minor child’s best interests. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re Hall-Smith, supra. Thus, the juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent-appellant’s parental rights to the child.
