            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Humboldt County, Joseph L. Tofilon, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Greer and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (8 pages)

            A mother appeals the district court order terminating her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: There is clear and convincing evidence in the record to support termination of the mother’s parental rights.  Termination of her parental rights is in the children’s best interests, and none of the exceptions to termination should be applied.  The district court properly denied the mother’s request for a six-month extension of time.  We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
