            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Daniel L. Block, Associate Juvenile Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., May, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Carr, S.J.  (3 pages)

            A father appeals the juvenile court order terminating parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: The father is without standing to contest termination of the mother’s parental rights and fails to advance any argument concerning the termination of his own parental rights.  Regardless, the record clearly shows termination of the father’s parental rights is appropriate under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(f) (2019).
