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

            A mother and father separately appeal a juvenile court order terminating their parental rights to their children.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the court did not abuse its discretion by not continuing or suspending the termination hearing, a six-month extension is not warranted, and termination is in the children’s best interests.
