In re Jason J., D054188

Juvenile court order terminating parental rights and choosing adoption as the preferred permanent is affirmed where: 1) the court did not err by terminating parental rights without making an express finding of unfitness as petitioner's only status was that of a biological father; and 2) substantial evidence supports a finding of insufficient benefit from continuing the parent-child relationship.
