Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Marion County, Steven Guiter, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (5 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child.  She contends (1) the State failed to prove the grounds for termination cited by the district court; (2) the district court should have afforded her additional time to work toward reunification; (3) termination was not in the child’s best interests; and (4) the district court should have invoked an exception to termination.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights to the child.
