Appeal From Spartanburg County
 Georgia V. Anderson, Family Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-017
Submitted January 1, 2007 – Filed January 11, 2007


AFFIRMED


Rodney Wade Richey, of Greenville, for Appellant.

Kenneth Philip Shabel, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

David Harold Hanna, Sr., of Spartanburg, for Guardian Ad Litem.

PER CURIAM:  This appeal arises from the termination of the parental rights of Cynthia H. as to Brittany H. (DOB: 07/28/2000); Brayden C. (DOB: 12/30/2002); and Jhonathan C. (DOB: 07/29/2004).  The court found Cynthia H.’s parental rights, as to each of her minor children, should be terminated on the grounds that the children have been out of the home for a period of six months and Cynthia H. has not remedied the conditions which caused the removal.  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.

ANDERSON, HUFF, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.


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