In re Interest of Brooklyn T. and Charlotte T., children under 18 years of age. State of Nebraska, appellee,

         3. ___: ___. When a parent admits to the State's allegations regarding the statutory ground for termination of parental rights and that termination is in the children's best interests, the State does not have to prove those allegations by clear and convincing evidence.
