Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Mary L. Timko, Associate Juvenile Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., Greer, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Carr, S.J.  (6 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child.  OPINION HOLDS: Because clear and convincing evidence supports the grounds for termination under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(d) (2019), termination is in the child’s best interests, and there is no countervailing reason to not terminate parental rights, we affirm.
