            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Lynn Poschner, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Greer, J., and Vogel, S.J.  Opinion by Vogel, S.J.  (9 pages)

            The mother and father separately appeal the termination of their parental rights to their children.  OPINION HOLDS: We find a statutory ground for termination satisfied for both parents, termination of the father’s parental rights is in the children’s best interests, and termination is not precluded by the children’s objection to termination or their bond with the parents.
