            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Union County, Monty W. Franklin, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Greer and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (11 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights, arguing the State failed to prove the grounds for termination, termination is not in her children’s best interests, and permissive exceptions should be applied to avoid termination.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the mother did not challenge all of the grounds for termination, termination is in the children’s best interests, and the evidence does not support applying any permissive exceptions to termination, we affirm the juvenile court’s termination of her parental rights.
