            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Floyd County, Karen Kaufman Salic, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Greer and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by May, P.J.  (9 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: Termination is in the child’s best interest.  We decline to apply Iowa Code section 232.116(3)(a) and (c) (2020) to preclude termination.  We do not grant the mother additional time to work toward reunification.  And we do not find a violation of her due process rights.
