Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Monroe County, William Owens, Associate Juvenile Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ. Opinion by Schumacher, J. (9 pages)
A mother appeals the juvenile court order terminating her parental rights to her children. OPINION HOLDS: The mother does not challenge the statutory ground relied on by the district court, and, consequently, we affirm the ground the juvenile court relied on for termination. We reject the mother’s argument concerning reasonable efforts and find that the children’s best interests require termination of the mother’s parental rights.
