No. 22-0761   IN RE P.H.

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Stephanie Forker Parry, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Greer and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (5 pages)

            The mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to C.T. and P.H., born in 2020 and 2021 respectively.  The juvenile court terminated the mother’s rights to both children under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(b) and (h) (2022).  The mother purports to challenge both of the statutory grounds, maintains termination of her rights is not in the children’s best interests, and asks for additional time to work toward reunification.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
