Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Appanoose County, William S. Owens, Associate Juvenile Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., Greer, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (6 pages)

            A father appeals the juvenile court order terminating his parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS:  We find there is clear and convincing evidence in the record to support termination of the father’s parental rights.  An extension of time would not be in the children’s best interests.  The State engaged in reasonable efforts to reunite the father with the children.  Termination of the father’s parental rights is in the children’s best interests.  We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
