            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Barbara H. Liesveld, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (4 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her two children, raising claims: the State failed to prove the grounds for termination cited by the juvenile court, termination is not in the children’s best interests, and the juvenile court should have declined to terminate her parental rights because the children were placed with a relative.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights to her children.
