            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Rachael E. Seymour, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (9 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to his child, arguing the grounds for termination have not been met, termination is not in the best interests of the child, and we should decline to terminate based on a permissive exception.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we find the statutory grounds for termination are satisfied, the best interests of the child support termination, and no exceptions to termination are applicable, we affirm.
