Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Mark C. Cord III, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Mullins, J., and Vogel, S.J.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (4 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to four children, contending that the record lacks clear and convincing evidence to support the grounds for termination, termination was not in the children’s best interests, and the district court should have afforded her six additional months to work toward reunification.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights to her children.
