            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Warren County, Brendan Greiner, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Doyle and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (4 pages)

            A mother and a father separately appeal the termination of their parental rights to their child.  OPINION HOLDS: Clear and convincing evidence shows the child could not be safely returned to either parent’s care at the time of the termination.  We affirm the termination of each parent’s rights under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(h) (2019).  The father failed to preserve error on his reasonable-efforts challenge.
