Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Peggy R. Smith, White Bluff, Tennessee, for the appellant, Candace H.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter, and Aaron E. Winter, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee, Department of Children’s Services.

Judge(s): BENNETT

Mother of two children appeals an order terminating her parental rights. Both children were taken into Department of Children’s Services custody after they tested positive for cocaine. The trial court found several grounds for termination and determined that termination is in the children’s best interests. Mother contends the trial court erred in finding clear and convincing evidence that termination of her rights is in the best interest of the children. Finding no error, we affirm the trial court’s judgment.
