Juveniles
TPR; justiciability; mootness

Amber D. appeals from an order terminating her parental rights. At the time that she wrote her brief, the father’s appeal was pending. Amber claimed that if the father’s appeal is successful and his case is remanded for further proceedings, her appeal should be likewise successful because her issue mirror’s the father’s argument. But the father’s appeal was ultimately unsuccessful. So, there is no justiciable issue for this court to decide. Her appeal is moot. This opinion will not be published.
