Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clayton County, Linnea M.N. Nicol, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Badding, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Carr, S.J.  (7 pages)

            A mother appeals a permanency order placing sole custody of her child with the father.  OPINION HOLDS: We find there is clear and convincing evidence to show the child cannot be safely returned to the mother’s care.  Also, an extension of six months is not appropriate because it is unlikely the need for removal would no longer exist at the end of the six-month period.  We affirm the decision of the juvenile court
