            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Colin J. Witt, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Greer, J., and Vogel, S.J.  Opinion by Vogel, S.J.  (6 pages)

            A mother appeals a juvenile court order terminating her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We find there is sufficient evidence in the record that the child cannot be returned to the mother, termination is in the child’s best interests to give the child stability, and custody of the child with her father does not militate against termination.  We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
