            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Susan Cox, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Schumacher and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (4 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm termination under section 232.116(1)(l) (2022).  Because delaying the child’s permanency for six months would not eliminate the need for the child’s removal, we decline to extend the time for permanency under section 232.104(2)(b).  Finally, section 232.116(3)(c) does not provide grounds for preserving the parent-child relationship.  We affirm the termination order.
