Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Mark C. Cord III, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., Greer, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (8 pages)

            A mother and father each appeal the juvenile court order terminating their parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We find there is sufficient evidence in the record to support terminating the parents’ rights, termination in the child’s best interests, and the circumstances do not warrant granting the parents additional time to work on reunification.  We affirm on both appeals.
