[¶1] M.U. appeals from a juvenile court order removing her children and placing them in the custody of Social Services. M.U. argues the children should not be removed and placed in the custody of Social Services because the juvenile court's finding of deprivation was inadequate and not supported by clear and convincing evidence. While retaining jurisdiction under N.D.R.App.P. 35(a)(3), we remanded to the juvenile court to make expedited findings of fact to determine whether the children were deprived. Interest of J.A.H., 2014 ND 196, ¶ 14, 855 N.W.2d 394. Upon review of the juvenile court's expedited findings of fact, on remand, we conclude the juvenile court's findings are supported by clear and convincing evidence and, therefore, are not clearly erroneous. We affirm the juvenile court's order under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
