            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Madison County, Kevin Parker, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Ahlers and Buller, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (6 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights.  He challenges the statutory grounds for termination, argues termination is not in the child’s best interests, suggests an exception to termination should be applied, and requests additional time to work toward reunification.  OPINION HOLDS: A statutory ground authorizing termination is satisfied.  Termination is in the child’s best interests.  No permissive exception to termination applies, and we do not grant the father additional time to work toward reunification.
