Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Susan Cox, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Bower, JJ. Opinion by Doyle, J. (7 pages)
A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child. OPINION HOLDS: The State proved the grounds for termination by clear and convincing evidence, and termination is in the child’s best interests. We decline to apply any of the statutory permissive factors to avoid termination, and we deny the mother’s request for a six-month extension.
