            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, Christine Dalton, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (7 pages)

            A father appeals the juvenile court order terminating his parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: The juvenile court did not abuse its discretion by denying the father’s motion for a continuance.  There is clear and convincing evidence in the record to support termination of the father’s parental rights and termination is in the best interests of the child.  We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
