Court of Appeals Opinion
Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Daniel L. Block, Associate Juvenile Judge. AFFIRMED. Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and McDonald, JJ. Opinion by Bower, J. (5 pages)
A father appeals the juvenile court’s decision terminating his parental rights in a private termination action brought by the child’s legal guardian. OPINION HOLDS: There is sufficient evidence in the record to show the father abandoned the child and termination of the father’s parental rights is in the child’s best interests. We affirm the juvenile court.
