In re C.C 9-16-07, 9-16-08Appellant waived the argument that the appellee failed to satisfy its case-plan obligations under R.C. 2151.412 and Ohio Adm.Code 5101:2-38-05; however, even considering the argument, the record reflects that the appellee did not fail to satisfy its case-plan obligations. The trial court did not abuse its discretion in concluding that the appellee's efforts toward reunification were reasonable and diligent under the circumstances of these cases. R.C. 2151.413(D)(3)(b) did not preclude appellee from filing motions for permanent custody. Appellee attempted to locate suitable kinship placements. The trial court had sufficient evidence before it to conclude by clear and convincing evidence that the children were in appellee's temporary custody for 12 or more months of a consecutive 22-month period at the time appellee filed its motions for permanent custody.PrestonMarion 9/26/2016 9/26/2016 2016-Ohio-6981
