            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Warren County, Brendan Greiner, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vogel, C.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (7 pages)

            A mother and father separately appeal the juvenile court decision terminating their parental rights.  They independently claim the evidence was insufficient to support termination, the court should have granted additional time for them to resolve their issues, and exceptions to termination apply.  OPINION HOLDS: We find sufficient evidence supports the termination, additional time is not warranted, and no exceptions preclude termination.  We affirm.
