            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Susan Flaherty, Associate Juvenile Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (5 pages)

            The mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her three children: W.S., born in 2010; S.A.-Y., born in 2011; and E.A.-Y., born in 2015.  The mother maintains the State did not prove the statutory grounds for termination, termination is not in the children’s best interests, and the parent-child bond weighs against termination.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the juvenile court’s termination of the mother’s parental rights.
