Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Colin J. Witt, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Tabor, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (11 pages)

            A mother and a father separately appeal the termination of their parental rights to two children.  They challenge the findings of the juvenile court that grounds for termination exist, termination is in the children’s best interests, and no permissive reason warrants the preservation of parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: On our de novo review, we affirm on both appeals.
