            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dallas County, Virginia Cobb, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (10 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to two children.  She contends (1) the State failed to prove the grounds for termination cited by the juvenile court; (2) termination was not in the children’s best interests; and (3) the children’s placement with the father should have precluded termination of her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the decision of the juvenile court to terminate the mother’s parental rights.
