           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Rachael E. Seymour, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J. (10 pages)

           A mother appeals the juvenile court’s termination of her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS:  We find the State made reasonable efforts to help the mother, demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that the children could not be returned to the mother’s custody, an extension of time is unwarranted, and termination is in the best interests of the children.  We affirm.
