Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Worth County, Adam D. Sauer, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Vogel, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and McDonald, JJ. Opinion by Vogel, C.J. (3 pages)
A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child, E.P. She requests an additional six months to work towards reunification, and she asserts termination is not in the child’s best interests and the bond they share should preclude termination. OPINION HOLDS: We find nothing in this record to support an extension of time that would delay termination. We also agree with the district court termination is in E.P.’s best interests. We therefore affirm the district court’s termination of the mother’s parental rights without further opinion.
