            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dubuque County, Thomas J. Straka, Associate Juvenile Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (5 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to two daughters.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the mother has not meaningfully addressed her mental-health issues and alcohol addiction for over a year, we find termination is in the children’s best interests.  Finding no exceptions preclude termination, we affirm.
