Renee C. appeals from orders terminating her parental rights and declaring her sons Scott and Richard likely candidates for adoption. Her only claim is that the juvenile court erred by denying her motion to order a bonding study. She sought the bonding study in an attempt to show that Scott and Richard would benefit from continuing the parent-child relationship. If she were also able to show that she had maintained regular visitation and contact with the boys, then the court would have had grounds for not terminating her parental rights. (Welf. & Inst. Code, Â§ 366.26, subd. (c)(1)(a).) We affirm the juvenile courts order. Renees motion for a bonding study came too late in the proceedings to be a proper part of the courts efforts to develop a permanent plan for the children.
