           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Barbara H. Liesveld, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Doyle, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Carr, S.J. (6 pages)

           A mother and father separately appeal the termination of their parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: As to the mother, we find the statutory grounds for termination are met, the best interests of the children and her parent-child bond do not preclude termination, and she should not receive additional time to pursue reunification.  We also find the father’s parent-child bond does not preclude termination.
