            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Mahaska County, Rose Anne Mefford, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vogel, P.J., and Vaitheswaran and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by Vogel, P.J.  (7 pages)

            The mother and father separately appeal the termination of their parental rights to their minor children, L.V.1, M.V., and L.V.2.  Both argue termination is not in the best interests of the children and the State failed to provide adequate services to both parents.  OPINION HOLDS: We find neither argument precludes termination and affirm.
