            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Rachael E. Seymour, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (9 pages)

            A father appeals the order terminating his parental rights to two children.  The father raises many issues with the termination.  OPINION HOLDS: After reviewing the record, we find none of the issues raised require reversal.  The State showed the father’s ongoing issues with substance abuse, mental health, and physical violence render him not safe as a custodial option for these children.  Moving promptly toward permanency promotes their welfare.
