    4  and insert:
    5         (2) In cases where the issue before the court is whether a
    6  child should be reunited with a parent, and the child is
    7  currently placed with someone other than a parent, the court
    8  must shall determine whether the parent has substantially
    9  complied with the terms of the case plan to the extent that the
   10  safety, well-being, and physical, mental, and emotional health
   11  of the child is not endangered by the return of the child to the
   12  home.
   13         (3)In cases in which the issue before the court is whether
   14  a child who has been placed in the custody of a parent from whom
   15  the child was not removed should be reunited with the other
   16  parent upon a finding of substantial compliance with the terms
   17  of the case plan, the applicable standard is not endangerment,
   18  but the best interest of the child.
