            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Susan Cox, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (11 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights as to two children. OPINION HOLDS: We find no denial of the mother’s due process rights.  We find the record supports termination of the mother’s rights to the two children.  Finally, we reject mother’s arguments that a permissive exception should have been applied, a six-month extension should have been granted, and termination is not in the children’s best interests.
