Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Marion County, Steven Guiter, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Doyle, J., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Scott, S.J.  (9 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child, born in 2013.  She contends termination is not in the child’s best interests given the parent-child bond, the State failed to make reasonable efforts at reunification, and she should have been granted a six-month extension.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
