A mother appeals the juvenile court decision terminating her parental rights. OPINION HOLDS: We find there is clear and convincing evidence in the record to support termination of the mother’s parental rights. Termination of her rights is in the children’s best interests. The mother has not met her burden to establish an exception to termination should be applied. We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
