            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Romonda Belcher, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (8 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his minor child.  He challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the grounds for termination and contends termination is not in the child’s best interests.  The father additionally challenges the denial of his motion to reconsider, enlarge, or amend the juvenile court’s findings.  OPINION HOLDS:  We affirm the termination of the father’s parental rights.
