North Carolina Court of Appeals affirms ruling to terminate mother’s parental rights

North Carolina Court of Appeals Judge Valerie Zachary released an opinion on Tuesday, September 20 affirming that a mother from Guilford County should have her parental rights terminated. The mother says her parental rights should not be terminated because the Department of Health and Human Services will have difficulty finding someone to adopt her son. Zachary’s decision was made in conjunction with two other members of a three-judge panel, Judges Wanda Bryant and John Tyson.

Guilford County District Court Judge Michelle Fletcher terminated the parental rights of the mother on Nov. 25, 2015 because the parent had yet to bond with the special needs child. Fletcher recognizes that an adoptive parent could take better care of the child.
