This appeal involves the termination of a mother’s parental rights to her severely disabled son. The trial court found by clear and convincing evidence that several grounds for termination exist and that termination is in the child’s best interest. On appeal, the mother challenges only the best interest finding. We affirm and remand for further proceedings.
