            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Dallas County, Virginia Cobb, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (7 pages)

A father appeals the termination of his parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: Clear and convincing evidence supports termination of the father’s parental rights under section 232.116(1)(f) (2020).  An extension of time on the facts of this case for reunification efforts is not warranted.  Accordingly, we affirm the termination of the father's parental rights.
