            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Barbara H. Liesveld, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (6 pages)

            A father appeals the juvenile court’s modification of the permanency goal in the child-in-need-of-assistance case placing the child in the mother’s custody.  The father claims the juvenile court abused its discretion in denying his motion to continue the second day of the permanency hearing. OPINION HOLDS: We find the juvenile court did not abuse its discretion in refusing to grant the father’s motion.
