J.A.B., Respondent and Appellant M.M.S. and T.M.S., Petitioners and Appellees
Appeal from the District Court of Burleigh County, South Central Judicial District, the Honorable David E. Reich, Judge.

Steven Balaban, Bismarck, ND, for respondent and appellant; submitted on brief.
Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J., Carol Ronning Kapsner, Lisa Fair McEvers, Daniel J. Crothers, Dale V. Sandstrom.
[¶1] The father of two minor children appeals from a judgment terminating his parental rights and granting an adoption petition by the children's stepfather. The father argues there was insufficient evidence to terminate his parental rights and to allow the adoption to proceed without his consent. We conclude the district court's findings are not clearly erroneous, and we summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
