            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Webster County, Joseph L. Tofilon, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by Blane, S.J.  (9 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to two children, challenging the statutory grounds for termination, the best-interests determination, and denial of her request for a six-month extension.  OPINION HOLDS:  Due to the mother’s persistent substance-abuse condition, there are no grounds for reversal of termination, so we affirm.
