            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Jones County, Deborah Farmer Minot, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Doyle, P.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (7 pages)

            A mother and father appeal the termination of parental rights to their son.  OPINION HOLDS: On our de novo review, we find clear and convincing evidence a ground for termination existed under section 232.116(1)(h) (2020) and termination was in the child’s best interest as to both parents.  Because no exceptions apply to preclude termination, we affirm the juvenile court’s termination order.
