            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Page County, Jennifer Benson Bahr, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (5 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to a child.  The father (1) challenges the grounds for termination cited by the district court; (2) argues the department of human services failed to make reasonable reunification efforts; (3) asserts termination was not in the child’s best interests; (4) argues he has a “strong bond” with the child; and (5) seeks additional time to reunify with the child.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the district court’s termination of the father’s parental rights to the child.
