            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Bremer County, Gregg R. Rosenbladt, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (13 pages)

            A father appeals from the custody decree granting the mother of the children physical care.  He contends he should have been given physical care.  OPINION HOLDS: On our review of the record, we agree with the district court that the mother edges out the father in terms of her ability to minister to the long-range needs of the two children, especially the older child who has special needs.  So we affirm the district court.
