Court of Appeals Opinion

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Colin J. Witt, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (7 pages)

            On appeal, the father and the intervenors contend the juvenile court erred in not finding the mother had relapsed and that the children should remain with the father.  OPINION HOLDS:  The juvenile court found both parents were capable of caring for their children at the time of the permanency-review hearing and determined the children could be returned to the mother, from whom the children had been removed.  We find no reason to disturb the juvenile court’s ruling and we therefore affirm.
