Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Marion County, Steven W. Guiter, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Greer and Ahlers, JJ. Opinion by Ahlers, J. (6 pages)
A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights. OPINION HOLDS: The State proved a statutory ground for termination and that termination of the mother’s parental rights is in the child’s best interests. Allowing six additional months for reunification would not remedy the issues that gave rise to the child’s removal.
