            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Carroll County, Joseph McCarville, Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (9 pages)

            A mother and father separately appeal the termination of their parental rights to their child.  The mother claims the State failed to prove the grounds for termination cited by the juvenile court and termination is not in the child’s best interests.  Both parents claim the State did not engage in reasonable efforts to reunite them with the child.  OPINION HOLDS: Upon our review, we affirm on both appeals.
