            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Susan F. Flaherty, Associate Juvenile Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Tabor, J., and Gamble, S.J.  Opinion by Gamble, S.J.  (9 pages)

            A mother and a father separately appeal from the termination of their parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: On our de novo review, we find clear and convincing evidence supports termination of both parents’ rights, and termination and adoption will best provide the children with much needed permanence.  We therefore affirm on both appeals.
