Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Romonda Belcher, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (5 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: On our de novo review, we agree with the juvenile court that grounds for termination exist, no extension of time is warranted, and termination of the mother’s parental rights is in the children’s best interests, which is not countermanded by any permissive exception.
