In re Denice F.
658 A. 2d 1070 (Me. 1995)

The court approved the termination of parental rights with regard to two children. One child "may . . . suffer from fetal alcohol effects. She is definitely at risk for academic difficulties and requires structure, consistency and patience from any parent." 658 A. 2d at 1074.

The level of the needs of the two children was a factor in the decision to terminate parental rights. "[T]he mother will not be able to cope with the demands of her children even with the myriad of services which have been made available to her in the past." 658 A. 2d at 1074.
