PER CURIAM:  Birth Mother appeals a family court order terminating her parental rights to her minor children.  The court found her parental rights should be terminated on three grounds:  1) failure to rehabilitate; 2) willful failure to support; and 3) failure to visit.   Additionally, the court found termination was in the best interest of the children.  After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Ex Parte Cauthen, 291 S.C. 465, 354 S.E.2d 381 (1987), we affirm the family court’s ruling.  Counsel is hereby relieved.

AFFIRMED.[1]
