            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Stephanie Forker Parry, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (11 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his minor child, born in 2014.  He contends the State failed to make reasonable efforts at reunification, challenges the sufficiency of the evidence underlying the statutory grounds for termination cited by the juvenile court, and argues termination is not in the child’s best interests.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the juvenile court order terminating the father’s parental rights.
