Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Lynn Poschner, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Bower, JJ. Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J. (4 pages)
A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to a child, born in 2018. She contends the State failed to prove the grounds for termination cited by the district court, termination is not in the child’s best interests, and the court should have granted her six additional months to work toward reunification with the child. OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights to the child.
