            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Charles D. Fagan, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (6 pages)

            Jordan and Brian separately appeal the termination of their parental rights to their two daughters.  OPINION HOLDS: The State offered clear and convincing evidence that the children could not be safely returned to either parent’s care.  And Jordan’s engagement with treatment came too late to support delaying permanency.  We affirm on both appeals.
