Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Winnebago County, Karen Kaufman Salic, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Tabor, P.J., Greer, J., and Danilson, S.J. Opinion by Danilson, S.J. (7 pages)
A mother appeals the juvenile court order terminating her parental rights. OPINION HOLDS: There is sufficient evidence in the record to support termination of the mother’s parental rights. It would not be in the children’s best interests to further extend this case by giving the mother an additional period of time to work on reunification. We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
