Highlight

Parents' fundamental and natural rights to their children are of constitutional dimension, but they are not absolute, and parents must at least provide care to their children that satisfies the minimum community standards.
When the mental and physical health of a child are the concerns, it is not enough that a mother indicates a desire to improve, and her failure to cooperate with social service assistance programs is a relevant factor in terminating parental rights.
