            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, David F. Staudt, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (6 pages)

            The mother appeals the juvenile court order terminating parental rights to her child, and the denial of her motion for new trial.  The juvenile court terminated the mother’s rights pursuant to Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(e) and (h) (2018) in March 2019.  OPINION HOLDS: After reviewing the record, we conclude that termination of parental rights is in the child’s best interest.  We also hold that the juvenile court did not abuse its discretion in denying the mother’s motion for new trial.  We affirm the juvenile court’s decision terminating the mother’s parental rights.
