Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-269
Submitted June 1, 2007 – Filed June 5, 2007


AFFIRMED


Bradford B. Easterling and Michelle Doris Jamieson R., both of Greenville, for Appellant.

Harry L. Phillips, Jr., SCDSS, of Greenville, for Respondent.

Chace Damon Campbell, of Greenville, for Guardian Ad Litem.

PER CURIAM: Michelle Doris Jamieson R. (Mother) appeals the family court’s order terminating her parental rights to her minor children.  The family court found Mother’s parental rights should be terminated because Mother: 1) willfully failed to support the children for a period of six months; and 2) failed to rehabilitate or to remedy the conditions which caused the removal of the children.  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 and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

AFFIRMED.[2]
