            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Charles D. Fagan, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and May, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (6 pages)

            A mother appeals a district court order terminating her parental rights to her child, born in 2016.  She contends (1) the record lacks clear and convincing evidence to support the grounds for termination cited by the court; (2) the department of human services did not make reasonable reunification efforts; and (3) termination is not in the child’s best interests.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights to her child.
