Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Union County, Monty Franklin, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (6 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights pursuant to Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(d), (e), (f), (k), and (l) (2020).  She contends termination of her parental rights is not in the children’s best interests, a permissive factor exists to avoid termination, and there is insufficient evidence to support termination under paragraphs “k” and “l.”  OPINION HOLDS: Discerning no reason to reverse the juvenile court’s ruling, we affirm.
