Summary

           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Hancock County, Karen Kaufman Salic, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (6 pages)

           A father appeals the termination of his parental rights.  He claims termination is not in the children’s best interests, a statutory exception to termination applies, and he should be given additional time to work toward reunification.  OPINION HOLDS: The father waived his best-interests claim, no statutory exceptions to termination apply, and an extension is not warranted under the circumstances of this case.  We therefore affirm the order terminating the father’s parental rights.
