            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Taylor County, Monty W. Franklin, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Carr, S.J.  (5 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child.  OPINION HOLDS: The mother concedes the State proved the grounds for termination under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(e) (2021).  Because termination is in the child’s best interests, we affirm the termination even though the child is in the legal custody of a relative.
