This appeal arises from the termination of Father's parental rights. After Father had not seen the child for over a year-and-a-half, Mother and her husband petitioned to terminate Father's parental rights. Following a trial, the chancery court found that Father had abandoned the child by willfully failing to visit him. The court also found that the termination of Father's parental rights was in the child's best interest. Father appeals the court's determination that he abandoned the child and that the termination of his rights was in the child's best interest. We affirm.
