            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Jasper County, Steven J. Holwerda, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (5 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his child, born in 2014.  He contends the State failed to prove the grounds for termination cited by the juvenile court and the juvenile court should have applied the statutory exception under Iowa Code section 232.116(3)(c) (2020) to preclude termination.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the decision of the juvenile court to terminate the father’s parental rights.
