I assume on 'kind' would be marsupial?

Ignoring for the moment how a marsupial got from Australasia to the near East, then back to Australasia after the flood (including the problems of no food and an ocean to cross), it then has to split into multiple groupings of immensely diverse creatures.

How the hell is it supposed to achieve all that? In a few thousand years?

Sounds to me like a miracle was needed.

What do we know about genetic diversity of marsupials?

Re: The YEC model requires beneficial mutations and strong positive selection.

Given that heterozygosity is an advantage in these genes I think you should go for four in this case

She can't, Adam and Eve didn't have parents to donate the extra alleles :-)
