Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Webster County, Angela L. Doyle, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Danilson, C.J., and Potterfield and Doyle, JJ.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (6 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his child.  OPINION HOLDS: Clear and convincing evidence establishes the grounds for termination of the father’s parental rights under Iowa Code section 232.116(1)(e) (2018).  Because termination, rather than delaying permanency an additional six months, is in the child’s best interests, we affirm.
