Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Osceola County, David C. Larson, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Potterfield and Mullins, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (4 pages)

            A mother and father appeal the termination of their parental rights to their child, arguing the grounds for termination cited by the juvenile court were not supported by clear and convincing evidence, termination was not in the child’s best interests, and that an exception to termination should have been invoked that would have placed the child with his aunt.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of parental rights to the child.
