            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Rachael E. Seymour, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (5 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights.  The mother does not contest the statutory grounds upon which her rights were terminated but contends termination is not in the child’s best interests and statutory exceptions should be applied to preclude termination.  OPINION HOLDS: We find termination is in the child’s best interests and no permissible exception to termination applies in this case.
