Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Keokuk County, Daniel Kitchen, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Greer, J., and Gamble, S.J.  Opinion by Gamble, S.J.  (4 pages)

            A mother appeals from the termination of her parental rights to four of her children.  She challenges one statutory ground authorizing termination and whether termination serves the children’s best interests.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the mother does not challenge all statutory grounds authorizing termination, we find grounds for termination are met.  We also find termination in the children’s best interests.
