Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Charles D. Fagan, District Associate Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Bower, C.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ. Opinion by Schumacher, J. (9 pages)
A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her minor child. OPINION HOLDS: We find there is sufficient evidence in the record to support termination of the mother’s parental rights, termination is in the child’s best interests, and an extension of time would not be appropriate. We affirm the decision of the district court.
