            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Mitchell County, Karen Kaufman Salic, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (5 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: The mother’s only claim we may hear on appeal was that the district court should not have terminated her parental rights because of the closeness of the child-parent bond.  We affirm the district court that there is insufficient evidence of this bond so as to avoid termination.
