Court of Appeals Opinion

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Romonda Belcher, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, P.J.  (4 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child.  OPINION HOLDS: Clear and convincing evidence shows the child could not be returned to the mother’s care at the time of the termination hearing and that termination is in the child’s best interests.  Because none of the circumstances listed in Iowa Code section 232.116(3) (2018) weigh against terminating the mother’s parental rights, we affirm.
