Mother appeals the termination of her parental rights. The trial court found three grounds for termination: abandonment by failure to support, substantial non-compliance with the permanency plan, and persistence of conditions. The trial court also found that termination of Mother's parental rights was in the best interests of the child. Finding the evidence clear and convincing, we affirm.
