Unpublished Opinion No.  2007-UP-413
Submitted October 1, 2007 – Filed October 5, 2007


AFFIRMED


Sean  Giovannetti, of Spartanburg, for Appellant.

Julie Rau and Tarita A. Dunbar, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

Michael Todd Thigpen, of Spartanburg, for Guardian ad Litem.

PER CURIAM: Tiffany R. S. appeals a family court order terminating her parental rights to her three minor children.  The court found her parental rights should be terminated on three grounds:  1) she failed to remedy the conditions that caused the removal of the children; 2) she had a diagnosable mental condition and it was unlikely the condition would change within a reasonable time; and 3) the children had been in foster care for at least fifteen of the last twenty-two months.  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.[1]
