The Bedford County Juvenile Court terminated the parental rights of the mother of two children on the grounds of failure to support, substantial noncompliance with the permanency plans, and persistence of conditions, and upon the determination that termination of mother’s rights was in the best interests of the children. The father executed a voluntary surrender of parental rights to the children. Mother appeals. Finding the evidence clear and convincing, we affirm.
