Date Published:
Mar 27, 2024

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Kimberly Ayotte, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Schumacher, P.J., Ahlers, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Schumacher, P.J.  (10 pages)

            A mother appeals the termination of her parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We find there is clear and convincing evidence in the record to support termination of the mother’s parental rights, termination is in the children’s best interests, and no exceptions to termination should be applied.  And an extension of time is unwarranted under these facts.  We affirm the termination of the mother’s parental rights.
