            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Craig M. Dreismeier, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (7 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his two children, contending: (1) the State failed to prove the statutory grounds for termination by clear and convincing evidence, (2) termination is not in the best interests of the children, and (3) the statutory exception contained in Iowa Code section 232.116(3)(c) (2018) should be applied to preclude termination.  OPINION HOLDS: Upon our de novo review, we affirm the termination of the father’s parental rights.
