Laura J. Lockwood of Tagtow & Lockwood, Des Moines, for appellant mother.
Thomas J. Miller, Attorney General, Katherine S. Miller-Todd, Assistant Attorney General, John P. Sarcone, County Attorney, and Andrea S. Vitzthum, Assistant County Attorney, for appellee State.
Jacob Mason, Ankeny, for appellee father.
M. Kathryn Miller of the Juvenile Public Defender Office, Des Moines, attorney for minor children, and Mike Bandstra, Des Moines, guardian ad litem for minor children.
Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Danilson and Mullins, JJ.
K.B. appeals the termination of her parental rights to three of her children. We review her claims de novo. In re P.L., 778 N.W.2d 33, 40 (Iowa 2010).
We have carefully reviewed the record, the briefs of the parties, and the juvenile court's exceptionally thorough, well-reasoned, and well-written ruling. We adopt as our own the findings of the juvenile court after our de novo review of the record. Because we agree and approve of the reasoning and conclusions therein, and because we believe there is little we can add to the ruling, we affirm pursuant to Iowa Rule of Appellate Procedure 6.1203(a), (d).
