            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Webster County, Joseph B. McCarville, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (8 pages)

            A mother appeals the juvenile court order terminating her parental rights to her minor child.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude the State presented sufficient evidence to support termination of the mother’s parental rights and that termination is in the best interests of the child.  We reject the mother’s reasonable–efforts argument and her request for more time.  We therefore affirm termination of her parental rights to K.W.-A.
