No response.

PER CURIAM

Appellant Jonathan Lively, by and through his attorney, Adell Ralston, has filed a motion to file a belated notice of appeal. An order terminating Lively's parental rights was entered on July 11, 2014. Pursuant to Arkansas Supreme Court Rule 6–9(b)(1) (2012), Lively's notice of appeal was required to be filed no later than August 1, 2014. An amended notice of appeal and designation of record was filed on August 25, 2014.

Where an attorney candidly admits fault, we will grant the motion for belated appeal, and a copy of the opinion will be forwarded to the Committee on Professional Conduct. Mann v.
