A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her children. OPINION HOLDS: We find the State fulfilled its duty to make reasonable efforts to reunify the mother with her children under Iowa Code section 232.102(6)(b) (2018), and clear and convincing evidence establishes the grounds for terminating the mother’s parental rights under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(h). We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
