            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Muscatine County, Gary P. Strausser, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (4 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her two children.  She appears to concede clear and convincing evidence supports the statutory grounds for termination but argues the children could have been safely returned to care if given additional time to work toward reunification.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude additional time is not warranted, and we affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
