As long as there is clear and convincing evidence that a statutory ground for termination of parental rights exists, C.G.S. §17a-112(a) provides the commissioner of children and families with the authority to petition the court for the termination of parental rights with respect to any child who is committed to her care as a result of the child previously having been adjudicated as uncared for or neglected.
