STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of LEROIA JOY NORRIS, LEROY JOSEPH NORRIS, JR., DEMTERUIS LONNIE NORRIS, and LASHAWNDA DENISE NORRIS, Minors. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED December 1, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 204214 Wayne Juvenile Court LC No. 89-275611 KATRESE LASHALLE ANCTON, Respondent-Appellant, and LEROY JOSEPH NORRIS, SR., 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 children under MCL 712A.19b(3)(g) and (j); MSA 27.3178(598.19b) (3)(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 Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989). Further, respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental rights was not clearly in the children’s best interests. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re -1­ 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 to the children. Id. Affirmed. /s/ Robert P. Young, Jr. /s/ Myron H. Wahls /s/ Kathleen Jansen -2­
