Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Lee (South) County, Clinton R. Boddicker, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Badding, JJ. Opinion by Badding, J. (9 pages)
A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child. She challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the ground for termination, argues termination is contrary to the child’s best interests, highlights the strength of the parent-child bond, and requests additional time to work toward reunification. OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
