Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Brent Pattison, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by May, P.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ. Opinion by Schumacher, J. (9 pages)
A mother appeals the juvenile court order terminating her parental rights. OPINION HOLDS: We find there is clear and convincing evidence in the record to support termination of the mother’s parental rights, termination is in the children’s best interests, and none of the exceptions to termination should be applied. We also find an extension of time for reunification is not appropriate in this case. We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
