            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Christine Dalton, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (6 pages)

            The mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to B.A., born in May 2017.  The juvenile court terminated the mother’s parental rights pursuant to Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(d) and (h) (2018).  On appeal, the mother purports to challenge the statutory grounds for termination.  Additionally, she argues she should have been given additional time to work toward reunification and termination is not in B.A.’s best interests.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
