In re MIKAYLA C. Submitted on Briefs April 14, 2000 Decided April 28, 2000 Panel: WATHEN, C.J., and CLIFFORD, ALEXANDER, and CALKINS, JJ. RUDMAN, DANA, SAUFLEY,

MEMORANDUM OF DECISION The mother of Mikayla C. appeals from a judgment of the District Court (Ellsworth, Anderson, J.) terminating her parental rights to Mikayla C. pursuant to 22 M.R.S.A. § 4055 (1992 & Supp. 1999). The only issue on

appeal is the sufficiency of the evidence to support the District Court's findings. Review of the record reflects that the District Court carefully

considered the evidence and conscientiously outlined its reasoning in a detailed opinion. While the mother's testimony contests some of the

findings, the record includes more than sufficient evidence to support the District Court's conclusion that the mother remains unwilling and unable to keep her child separate from individuals that pose a threat to the child and that the statutory prerequisites for termination of parental rights have been proven by clear and convincing evidence. The entry is: Judgment affirmed.
