Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Benton County, Barbara H. Liesveld, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Greer, J., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Scott, S.J.  (7 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her two children.  She challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the grounds for termination cited by the juvenile court, argues termination is contrary to the children’s best interests given the parent-child bonds, and maintains she should be allowed additional time to work toward reunification.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
