            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Stephanie Forker Parry, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Doyle, J., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Scott, S.J.  (4 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child, born in 2017, pursuant to Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(d), (e), (h), (i), and (l) (2019).  She challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the statutory grounds for termination and argues the child’s best interests require the establishment of a guardianship in relatives.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
