Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Jones County, Jason A. Burns, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (5 pages)

            The mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her three children.  On appeal, the mother contends only that termination of her rights is not in the children’s best interests and the permissive exception in Iowa Code section 232.116(3)(c) (2019) should be applied to save the parent-child relationships.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
