            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Poweshiek County, Rose Anne Mefford, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (7 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to a one-year-old child.  OPINION HOLDS: The father’s sole contention is that it was not in the child’s best interests to terminate his parental rights.  The father’s lack of progress in addressing and controlling his anger leads us to conclude it is in the child’s best interests to terminate his parental rights and seek a permanent home for the child.  We affirm.
