Colin Kaepernick's Birth Mother

Heidi Russo, Colin Kaepernick's birth mother, talks to Mak Schwarz about giving Kaepernick up for adoption.

The column Rick Reilly wrote about adoption during Super Bowl week encouraged San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to meet with his birth mother.

The birth mother, Heidi Russo, did not speak with Reilly for the piece. Her subsequent conversation with ESPN was packed with emotion. I'm not sure there's a conclusion to be drawn or to what extent this is even anyone outside the Kaepernick family's business. Judge for yourself.
