            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Susan Cox, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (7 pages)

            A mother appeals from a juvenile court order terminating parental rights to her son, arguing the State failed to prove grounds for termination by clear and convincing evidence, termination is not in the child’s best interest, and provisions of Iowa Code section 232.116(3) (2020) should be applied to avoid termination of her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm.
