This is a parental termination case. Father appeals the trial court?s termination of his parental rights with regard to the minor child at issue. The trial court terminated Father?s parental rights based on its finding, by clear and convincing evidence, that Father abandoned the child by willful failure to visit and willful failure to support the child. The trial court further found, by clear and convincing evidence, that termination was in the best interests of the child. We affirm.
