            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Scott Strait, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Greer and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (9 pages)

            A mother appeals the district court order terminating her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the termination of the mother’s parental rights is supported by the evidence, the State engaged in reasonable efforts to reunite the mother and child, termination is in the child’s best interests, and an exception to termination is not warranted in this case.  We affirm the district court.
