Kaepernick's bio mom comes forth
Super Bowl star Colin Kaepernick's mother who gave him up for adoption REFUSED help to bring him up from her own distraught parents . . . and hasn't even told them who the father is | Mail Online

Did not read this yet.
Why, why bring this forth right now as he is in the biggest part of his profession and a part of it which he may or may not do again?
What a way to mess up his head.

Yes, bio parents come out of the air when the child is a rich adult.
Suppose he was in jail, a nothing. A waste.
No air bio parents would be there.
No, we don't the circumstnaces as to why he was put up for adoption, but it can be said he had great parents. The ones who raised him are his great parents and are who made him today.
I read the story. I am not judging the bio , the then young mom who had supportive parents, but she got involved with a Black guy.
It is a good story and his bio end are, it sems, good people too. It is a good story his parents who are his parents who raised him are good people and Kaep had a good life.
Best wishes to all and

WIN Kaep!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Win the big one!!!:p

The timing couldn't be more suspect could it?

If you want to try and make contact, keep trying to do it privately and discretely. You don't do it in the media and on twitter as soon as he gets good and famous.

This just screams,I want some of that cash.

Some tabloid magazine will sit with here through the superbowl while she says how proud she is and just wants to get to know him.At the same time taking a 6 figure cheque for interviews etc.
Being a parent is more than just creating a child.

What would be great is for him just to say
" I don't know that lady" .... and move on.

I hope she fades away and she should as he has declined to meet her. This is something so personal I hate to see it in the media.

Nice article on AP about Kaepernick and his family here:

Column: Painful losses endure for Kaepernicks | Pro32: Head to Head

Their new son was 5 weeks old when they first held him at the Lutheran Social Services office in Appleton, Wis. He was healthy, vibrant, and full of life.

On Sunday he'll be behind center, trying to win a Super Bowl for the San Francisco 49ers.

"He's ready to roll," Rick Kaepernick said this week from his hotel room in this party town. "He's pretty focused."

If the story of Colin Kaepernick's meteoric rise from obscurity to superstar in the making is a remarkable one, the story of his life bears some telling, too. Born to a teenager in Wisconsin a quarter century ago, the only memories he has of his early life are with the couple who adopted him.

He doesn't like to talk about it, and has declined chances to meet with his birth mother. For their part, the Kaepernicks particularly dislike it when people refer to their son as adopted.

Of course, they couldn't have imagined when they began the process that the offspring of a blonde, athletic mother and an African-American father who was out of the picture before he was born would be a star quarterback.

"At the end of the day he's just our son," Rick said.

"Patent Support" is not an award courts give.

If you can't come forward the day before the SB, don't open your trap the day after.
