            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Cheryl E. Traum, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Greer and Chicchelly.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (5 pages)

            A mother appeals from the termination of her parental rights, arguing she should have been given six additional months to work towards reunification and the State did not prove termination was in the children’s best interests.  OPINION HOLDS: As the mother could not have been reunited with the children after six months, an extension was not appropriate.  Termination is in the best interests of the children.
