It’s a universal rule that something special surrounds mother-child connection, and nothing can beat that union. However, everyone has their own personal stories, making every mother-child relationship unique. Sometimes strange circumstances happen, and mother and child are separated. This is what happened to Heidi Russo and Colin Kaepernick. Read on to understand how this mother connected with her child after many years of being separated.
Although not much is known about this currently employed nurse in Colorado, some facts are well-spread and known. That being said, we know that Heidi was born in 1969 in the States and that her parents are James and Phyllis Zabransky.
At the time, she works in Denver, Colorado. Everything else about this lady is still unknown.
Regardless of the secret veil around Russo, some facts about her private life had to come on the surface. After all, it’s kind of normal that people, usually professionals, manage to discover something when you are linked with a famous person.
Russo was only 19 when she gave birth to a child – Colin Kaepernick.
At that time, Ruso wasn’t married, and her partner turned his back on her as soon as he learned about pregnancy.
Being left all alone and scared, she did the only thing she tough was right – she gave her newborn in adoption.
Through a mutual friend, she learned about a couple who wants a baby. That’s how she met Colin’s future parents, Teresa and Rick Kaepernick. Today, Russo is married to Heath Russo, and the couple has three children named Alex, Ethan, and Michael.
Heidi And Chris
Kaepernick’s never kept Heidi from their son, Chris. However, he never approached his biological mother because he was afraid that his parents would be hurt. But, Heidi did manage to keep a healthy relationship with Colin’s parents. But, once Colin turned seven, she lost communication with the family.
Soon after, Heidi reaches out to Kaepernick’s again, now determined to win her son’s heart. Sadly, he never showed a strong interest in building a relationship with Heidi Ruso, his biological mother.
Heidi used to be seen in his games played cheering for him. She even revealed that she regrets giving him up for adoption. Still, she strongly believes that Kaepernick gave him a far better life than she ever could.
Colin against the world
When Colin refused to show his respect toward the anthem, his biological mother, Heidi, showed no support for his action. This probably didn’t make their relationship stronger. It is yet to be seen how these two are going to develop their relationship.

Since his bank account is not going up significantly at the moment, that’s probably not the option.
