A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child, contending she was denied (1) “her state and federal constitutional rights to due process by the failure to provide a transcript of trial proceedings prior to the filing of this Petition on Appeal”; (2) “reasonable effort services by [the department of human services’] failure to facilitate residential chemical dependency treatment after [she] had been evaluated with a recommendation for such”; and (3) her “request for a 6-month extension to allow her to accomplish residential chemical dependency treatment.”  OPINION HOLDS: The juvenile court order granting the State’s petition to terminate the mother’s parental rights is affirmed.
