            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Muscatine County, Gary P. Strausser, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by McDonald, J.  (8 pages)

            A father appeals from the termination of his parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: There are grounds for termination of the father’s parental rights, and we do not find an extension of time to seek reunification is in the children’s best interests or that the parent-child bond weighs against termination here.  Finding no merit in the father’s contentions, we affirm the termination of his parental rights.
