Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Delaware County, Linnea M.N. Nicol, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (8 pages)

            A mother appeals the district court’s decision denying her petition seeking to terminate the father’s parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS:  We find the court properly determined the mother did not meet her burden to show by clear and convincing evidence the father had abandoned the child.  Due to our finding on this issue, we do not consider whether termination was in the child’s best interests.  We affirm the district court’s decision.
