            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her children.  OPINION HOLDS: We grant the mother’s request for delayed appeal but affirm the termination of her parental rights.  There is no basis for delaying permanency another six months, and the evidence shows terminating the mother’s parental rights is in the best interests of the children.
