The appellate court in this parental termination case held that the mother's "Motion for New Trial or, in the Alternative, Notice of Appeal" was not a bona fide attempt to invoke its appellate jurisdiction. In Re: K.A.F. is distinguished. The present filing expressed an intent to appeal to the court of appeals and was partially entitled to a notice of appeal, which constituted a bona fide attempt to invoke appellate jurisdiction upon its filing with the trial court clerk. The court of appeals judgment is reversed and remanded. Texas Supreme Court, No. 12-0836, 03-15-2013.
