            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Warren County, Kevin Parker, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Doyle, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (5 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her children, born in 2015, 2018, and 2019.  She contends the department of human services failed to make reasonable efforts toward reunification, she should be given additional time to work toward reunification, and 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.
