A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights. OPINION HOLDS: Because we find the State proved the grounds for termination under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(f) (2018) by clear and convincing evidence, the mother was provided reasonable efforts, and termination is in the child’s best interests, we affirm.
