PER CURIAM: Gale B. appeals from the order of the family court terminating her parental rights to her daughter, B.B. Pursuant to Ex parte Cauthen, 291 S.C. 465, 354 S.E.2d 381 (1987), Gale B.’s counsel attached to the record of the family court proceedings an affidavit stating he reviewed the transcript and was unable to determine any meritorious issues. Neither the Department of Social Services nor Gail B. filed a response to counsel’s affidavit.
Upon reviewing the record and the family court’s determination in its entirety, we find no meritorious issues warranting briefing. Accordingly, the family court’s decision is
HEARN, C.J., and GOOLSBY and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
