            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Cynthia S. Finley, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Greer, J., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Scott, S.J.  (7 pages)

            Parents separately appeal the termination of their parental rights to their respective children.  Both parents challenge the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the statutory ground for termination cited by the juvenile court and argue termination is not in the children’s best interests due to the closeness of the parent-child bonds.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of both parents’ parental rights.
