           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Rachael E. Seymour, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Vogel and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Vogel, J. (6 pages)

            A mother and father separately appeal the termination of their parental rights to their son, P.W., born April 2017.  OPINION HOLDS: Because of the parents’ lack of participation in offered services, P.W. could not be returned at the time of the termination hearing.  Also, termination was in the child’s best interests and no factors precluded termination.
