           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Clay County, Charles K. Borth, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., Vogel, J., and Blane, S.J.  Opinion by Blane, S.J. (13 pages)

            A father appeals from termination of his parental rights to two children.  OPINION HOLDS: Clear and convincing evidence supports termination of the father’s parental rights under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(h) (2018).  Termination is in the children’s best interests, and no statutory exception should be applied to prevent termination.  We find no grounds to support the father’s request for an additional six months or for a guardianship in his mother.  We affirm the juvenile court.
