            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Rachael E. Seymour, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (6 pages)

            A mother appeals a district court order terminating her parental rights to her child, contending the record lacks clear and convincing evidence to support the grounds for termination cited by the court.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude the State proved that the child cannot be returned to the mother’s custody as required by Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(h) (2018).  We affirm the juvenile court’s termination of her parental rights to the child.
