In re N.B., 240 N.C. App. 353 (2015)


The findings in a cease reunification order need not quote the exact language of the statute but instead must make clear that the trial court considered the substance of the statutorily required findings. The findings of the mother's persistent failure to comply with recommendations concerning her drug use, her dishonesty and continued contact with her live-in boyfriend who is violent, her failure to accept responsbility for her actions, her unwillingness or inability to apply the information and skills she has learned through services to her daily life and interaction with her children, and lack of fitness to care for the children, and it being contrary to the children's best interests and need for safe and permanent home to be reunified with either parent meet the substance of GS 7B-906.1(d)(3).
