Court of Appeals Opinion

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Christine Dalton, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Doyle, J., and Vogel, S.J.  Opinion by Vogel, S.J.  (9 pages)

            The mother and father separately appeal the termination of their parental rights to J.G.  While only the mother asserts the State failed to prove the statutory grounds for termination, both parents assert termination is not in the child’s best interests and the Iowa Department of Human Services failed to make reasonable efforts for reunification.  The father also requested additional time for reunification.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of the parental rights of both parents.
