            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dallas County, Virginia Cobb, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (8 pages)

            A mother and father separately appeal the termination of parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS:  Because we find clear and convincing evidence that grounds for termination of the mother’s parental rights were established under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(h) (2017), termination of the parents’ parental rights is in the children’s best interests, reasonable services for reunification were provided, and an extension of time for reunification is not supported under the facts of the case, we affirm the juvenile court’s order terminating the parents’ parental rights.
