Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, David F. Staudt, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Tabor, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (7 pages)

            A mother appeals the juvenile court order terminating her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We find that granting the mother an extension of time is not in the child’s best interests.  Also, termination of the mother’s parental rights, rather than placing the child in a guardianship, is in the child’s best interests.  We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
