            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clinton County, Phillip J. Tabor, District Associate Judge.  REVERSED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and McDonald, JJ.  Tabor, J., takes no part.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J. (11 pages)

            The guardian ad litem for J.B., joined by the State, appeals both the district court order dismissing the State’s petition to terminate parental rights and the permanency order continuing reunification efforts with the mother.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we find the State proved the grounds for termination by clear and convincing evidence, we reverse the district court’s order dismissing the State’s petition and terminate the mother’s parental rights.
