            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Cerro Gordo County, Adam Sauer, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Doyle and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (10 pages)

            A mother and father separately appeal the termination of their parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: The parents failed to preserve error on their reasonable-efforts claims.  We find the statutory grounds for termination were established by clear and convincing evidence.  We decline to grant either parent an extension and affirm the termination of the mother’s and father’s parental rights.
