R.H., Appellee

No. 20120278

Appeal from the District Court of Burleigh County, South Central Judicial District, the Honorable Harlan Patrick Weir, Judge.
AFFIRMED.
Per Curiam.
Daniel H. Oster (on brief), 619 Riverwood Drive, Suite 202, Bismarck, N.D. 58504, for petitioner and appellant.

Adoption of D.J.D.

No. 20120278

Per Curiam.

1] B.D.D. appeals from a district court order denying his petition for adoption. Although his petition did not specifically request it, termination of the natural father's parental rights would also have been required. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
