Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Iowa County, Jason A. Burns, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., Bower, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Carr, S.J.  (5 pages)

            The mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to B.B.  She argues the State failed to prove the statutory grounds for termination, termination is not in B.B.’s best interests, and the bond between them precludes termination.  OPINION HOLDS: Because of the mother’s ongoing substance abuse and the relative weakness of her bond with B.B., we affirm the termination.
