            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clinton County, Phillip J. Tabor, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Tabor, J., takes no part.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (6 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her children.  OPINION HOLDS: The mother failed to preserve error on her claims that the State failed to make reasonable efforts to have the children returned to her care and the juvenile court should have continued the termination hearing.  Because the evidence shows termination of the mother’s parental rights is in the children’s best interests, we affirm.
