            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Barbara H. Liesveld, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by McDonald, J.  (9 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights in his child.  OPINION HOLDS: There is sufficient evidence supporting the statutory grounds authorizing the termination of his parental rights.  Termination of his parental rights is in the child’s best interest.  The parent-child bond does not preclude termination.  The father should not be granted an additional six months to work toward reunification.
