Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, Emily Dean, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (10 pages)

            The mother appeals the termination of her parental rights to M.A., born in 2012; M.G., born in 2017; and M.C., born in 2019.  OPINION HOLDS: Because no extension is warranted, grounds for termination exist, termination is in the children’s best interests, and no permissive exception suggests termination is not appropriate, we affirm.
