            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Warren County, Brendan Greiner, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J.  (10 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to three children.  She challenges the grounds for termination, argues termination is contrary to the children’s best interests due to the closeness of the parent-child bonds, additional time would rectify the situation, and a guardianship should have been established in lieu of termination.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s rights.
