The Juvenile Court of Putnam County terminated the parental rights of both parents to their three children on the grounds of substantial noncompliance with the permanency plans and persistence of conditions, and upon the determination that termination of both parents’ rights was in the best interests of their children. Both parents appeal. Finding the evidence clear and convincing, we affirm.
