The sole issue in this appeal is whether the trial court abused its discretion in denying the motion filed by Appellant, Eastera Bell Porter, individually and as surviving spouse and next friend of Jasper D. Porter, deceased, under Rule 60 T.R.C.P., to set aside the summary judgments entered in favor of the appellees, Jesse McGee, M.D. and Methodist Hospitals of Memphis (Methodist). After review of the record, we find an absence of abuse by the trial court in this regard and affirm. We set forth our reasons below.

The parental rights of the petitioner (Mother) to her child , "R.", born January 29, 1997 during her Mother's incarceration, were terminated upon a finding that statutory grounds therefore were proved by clear and convincing evidence. Weighing very carefully the Mother's constitutional right to care for her child, on the one hand, and the best interests of the child, on the other, we vacate the judgment and remand for further proceedings.
