            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Blackhawk County, David F. Staudt, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and May, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (7 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her three minor children.  The mother argues the State did not make reasonable efforts at reunification and challenges the sufficiency of the evidence underlying the statutory grounds for termination cited by the juvenile court.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude the mother failed to preserve error on her reasonable-efforts challenge and the State met its burden for termination.  We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
