Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Korie Talkington, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (10 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to her child.  She asserts the district court abused its discretion when it denied her motion for a continuance of the termination hearing.  She also argues that there was insufficient evidence supporting a statutory ground for termination, that termination was not in the child’s best interest, and that the court should have found a permissive exception to termination.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm.
