ASRC Board of Directors

The ASRC Board welcomes inquiries from passionate, skilled, highly ethical volunteers who align with the organization's mission and values.  Board members serve a staggered two-year term, which may be renewed. It is recommended that applicants be in a reasonably settled place in terms of search, reunion and processing adoption-related issues.  

Kathy Aderhold, RN, BSN, MSN is the ASRC Vice President.  Kathy relinquished her daughter in 1972 after being sent to a Booth maternity home. She searched for and found her daughter in 1998. She has testified before legislative committees and was featured in Dan Rather's Emmy-nominated documentary "Adopted or Abducted?" She recently retired from a career that included working as a Certified Nurse Midwife, running a clinic for pregnant teens, and a Legal Nurse Consultant.  Kathy is now busy in retirement as a Search Angel using genetic genealogy. She and her husband Ben, who has also connected with a son who was relinquished for adoption, live in Denver, CO, and thoroughly enjoy time with their children and grandchildren. 

CoCo Brush has served in various leadership roles with Concerned United Birthparents (CUB).  As a former educator and current longtime search and support advocate, her passions include "adoption in the classroom;" conveying the importance of ethics in relinquishment, adoption, and reunion - and improving related language.  She finds great fulfillment in facilitating communication between reconnected birth/first parents and adult adopted persons.  In the 1980s, CoCo began to search for her relinquished son. He found her in 1991, and is working on a documentary film about reunited families.  CoCo holds a BA in K-10 Education, a BS in Early Childhood Development, and a BA in Anthropology,  with an emphasis on Native American Education. She enjoys spending time with all three of her children and grandchildren.
