Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Christine Dalton, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and May, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (6 pages)

            The father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his child, C.G., born in June 2016.  The juvenile court terminated the father’s parental rights pursuant to Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(d) and (h) (2018).  He maintains the State failed to prove the statutory grounds by clear and convincing evidence, termination is not in the child’s best interests, and a permissive factor weighs against severing the parent-child relationship.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the statutory grounds for termination have been proved by clear and convincing evidence, termination is in C.G.’s best interests, and no permissive factor weighs against severing the parent-child relationship, we affirm.
