            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Appanoose County, William Owens, Associate Juvenile Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.   Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (8 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his child.  The district court terminated his parental rights under Iowa Code section 600A.8(3)(b) (2018).  On appeal, the father argues the termination of his parental rights is supported by insufficient evidence.  OPINION HOLDS:  The mother proved the father abandoned the child by clear and convincing evidence.  It is in the child’s best interest to terminate the father’s parental rights.  We affirm.
