In The Court of Appeals

Thomas Charles Wilson and Vicky Whitt Wilson, Respondents,

v.

Lisa Snelgrove, Larry Davenport, John Roe (Fictitious Name) and Stephanie, a minor under the age of seven (7) years, Defendants,

of whom Larry Davenport is, Appellant.


Appeal From Laurens County
 Joseph W. McGowan, III, Family Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-496
Submitted August 1, 2005 – Filed August 22, 2005   


AFFIRMED


Larry Davenport, of McCormick; and W. Reid Cox, of Laurens, for Appellant.

James Fletcher Thompson, of Spartanburg, for Respondents.

PER CURIAM: This appeal arises from the termination of the parental rights of Larry Davenport to his minor daughter.  The court found his parental rights should be terminated on four grounds:  1) willful failure to provide support; 2) willful failure to visit; and 3) Davenport’s diagnosable condition of drug addiction that is unlikely to change within a reasonable time.  Additionally, the court found termination was in the best interest of the child.  See S.C. Code Ann. § 20-7-1572 (Supp. 2004).

After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Ex Parte Cauthen, 291 S.C. 465, 354 S.E.2d 381 (1987), we affirm[1] the family court’s ruling and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

AFFIRMED.

GOOLSBY, BEATTY and SHORT, JJ. Concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
