Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Susan Cox, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Tabor, J., and Mullins, S.J.  Opinion by Mullins, S.J.  (6 pages)

A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his child, arguing the State failed to prove the statutory grounds for termination by clear and convincing evidence.  OPINION HOLDS: We agree with the juvenile court that the child could not be returned to the father’s custody at the time of the termination hearing.  Consequently, we affirm the termination of the father’s parental rights.
