In re Valerie A., D049901

Judgments terminating defendant's parental rights to her children under Welfare and Institutions Code section 366.26 are affirmed over claims that: 1) defendant was denied a fair opportunity to litigate the sibling relationship exception to termination of parental rights under section 366.26(c)(1)(E); and 2) the court erred when it did not make appropriate orders for sibling visitation and contact, thereby irreparably eroding the children's bonds to their older sibling.
