            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Union County, John D. Lloyd, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (7 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to two children.  She contends the State did not offer clear and convincing evidence of the statutory ground for termination.  She also argues the court should have refrained from terminating her rights because she has a strong bond with the children and relatives are caring for them.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we find little record support for the mother’s arguments, we affirm the termination of parental rights.
