In re Z.N., No. A124843

Termination of a mother's parental rights over seven-year-old twins and selecting adoption as their permanent plan after a hearing under Welfare and Institutions Code, section 366.26 is affirmed where: 1) there is no record suggestions that anything would have gone more favorably for the mother had the court granted the McKenzie/Mardsen motions; and 2) any error in the ICWA notice was harmless, and this leaves no need to consider further arguments.
