COURT OF APPEALS
In the Matter of SHANIQUA YVONNE WALKER,
LASHONDA MONIQUE WALKER and
REGINALD DERRAL ELLIS, JR., Minors.
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
December 8, 1998
Oakland Juvenile Court
LC No. 97-063678 NA
KERWIN THOMPSON, JAMES REED and
REGINALD ELLIS, SR.,
Before: Sawyer, P.J., and Wahls and Hoekstra, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from the juvenile court orders terminating her parental
rights to the minor children under MCL 712A.19b(3)(g) and (i); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(g) and (i).
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination were
established by clear and convincing evidence. See 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 clearly not in the children’s best interests.
See 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 to the children.
