In re R.M.

Justia Opinion Summary

Mother's first two children were removed from her care due to neglect. Mother's third child lived with his paternal grandmother. Mother's parental rights to her fourth child were terminated when the child was twelve months old. After Mother gave birth to her fifth child, R.M., the district court ordered that her parental rights to R.M. be terminated. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court (1) determined by clear and convincing evidence that Mother was unwilling or unable to protect R.M. from jeopardy and that these circumstances were unlikely to change within a time reasonably calculated to meet the child's needs, and (2) did not abuse its discretion in determining that termination of Mother's parental rights was in R.M.'s best interest.
