Donna S. v. Arkansas Dep't of Human Servs

In Donna S. v. Arkansas Dep't of Human Servs., 61 Ark. App. 235, 966 S.W.2d 919 (1998), the Court affirmed the termination of parental rights because, in part, the parent failed to keep the living conditions clean, but the constant maintenance of clean living conditions was critical in that case because the child suffered from sickle-cell anemia, which rendered him constantly at risk for contracting life-threatening infections, and an eating disorder, which required that he be fed with an apparatus that had to be kept clean.
