IN THE MATTER OF THE ADOPTION OF E.H.L., A MINOR CHILD
D.R.K. AND P.E.K., PETITIONERS AND APPELLEES
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, NORTH DAKOTA DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES, AND K.L.K., RESPONDENTS AND T.A.A., RESPONDENT AND APPELLANT
Appeal from the District Court of Richland County, Southeast Judicial District, the Honorable Daniel D. Narum, Judge.
[¶1] T.A.A. appeals the district court's judgment terminating his parental rights and granting D.R.K. and P.E.K.'s petition to adopt his daughter, E.H.L. T.A.A. argues the district court erred in finding he abandoned the child because he had tried to establish a relationship with the child, but D.R.K. and P.E.K. prevented him from seeing the child.
[¶2] The district court's judgment is affirmed under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
