            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Kimberly Ayotte, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Tabor and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (5 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his daughter, who is now four years old.  He contends the State failed to prove a statutory ground for termination by clear and convincing evidence, that termination is not in the child’s best interests, and he asks to delay permanency for six months.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we are unconvinced by any of his three arguments, we affirm.
