            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Mary L. Timko, Associate Juvenile Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., May, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (7 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to four children, contending (1) the State failed to prove the grounds for termination cited by the juvenile court; (2) the juvenile court should have granted her additional time to work towards reunification; and (3) termination was not in the children’s best interests.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the decision of the juvenile court to terminate the mother’s parental rights.
