Colin Kaepernick's biological mom seeks out NFL star

 Heidi Russo gave an emotional interview in which she explained her ongoing pain at giving up her biological son Colin Kaepernick for adoption 25-years ago
I found this story very sad. The biological mother of San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has expressed a desire to meet him. She gave him up for adoption six weeks after giving birth to him in 1987...

Heidi has made numerous attempts to get back into contact with Colin over the past 18-years and each one has been rebuffed in a polite or lukewarm manner. 'I have to respect his wishes,' explained Russo.

During one of the brief exchanges they did have, Colin asked Heidi about his biological father.

Heidi explained to the Mercury News that she tried to contact him, but got no reply. 'I never got a response,' explained Russo. 'He has denied him for 25 years, so nothing has changed.'

With all the pressure that goes with preparing for the Super Bowl, it makes you wonder how Kaepernick can focus with things like this going on. This stuff is so much bigger than any game. 

Not sure if she contacted the media or vice versa. However, maybe she should try contacting him during the off-season, when he has more time. In any event, I don't think it's fair for people to assume she is after his new found wealth. I believe it is common for biological parents to reach out to their children later in life. Some people are saying she wouldn't care about him if he was flipping burgers somewhere, but I disagree. If this topic interests you, I recommend you read the entire article here...
