            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Eric J. Nelson, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (6 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights.  He argues there is a lack of clear and convincing evidence to support termination.  He also contends a permissive exception should preclude termination of his rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We find clear and convincing evidence supports termination.  We further conclude the juvenile court properly declined to apply a statutory exception.  We affirm.
