            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights in her child.  OPINION HOLDS: The trial court correctly found by clear and convincing evidence that the child could not be returned to the mother at the time of the termination hearing.  The trial court was correct in denying the mother an additional six months for reunification.  Termination of the mother’s parental rights was in the best interest of the child.
