            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Scott Strait, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (3 pages)

            The mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her three children.  The juvenile court terminated the mother’s parental rights to each child pursuant to Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(b), (e), (f), and (l) (2018).  OPINION HOLDS: The mother does not challenge whether clear and convincing evidence supports paragraph (b), so we affirm on this ground.  Based on the record at the time of the termination trial, termination of the mother’s parental rights is in these children’s best interests.  We affirm.
