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 Potterfield and Mullins, JJ. Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J. (4 pages)
A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to one of her children, born in 2018. She contends the State failed to prove the grounds for termination cited by the district court, termination was not in the child’s best interests, and the court should have declined to terminate her parental rights based on the parent-child bond. OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights to the child.
