Tomorrow I have to bring my 6 year old to meet his biological father for the first time

How do I explain to my 6 year old son that the only dad that he knows is not his biological father. I will be taking him to meet his biological father tomorrow for the first time, any suggestions on how to approach this matter?

Just let him know that there's someone else that is his family and wants to love him. At 6, you don't have to go into too many details. You can say that the person he will meet is his biological father, meaning that half of what makes your son who he is came from this man and half came from you. And the man that has been his daddy all this time also loves him and is his family, but they are not blood related. I'm sure he will have more questions as he gets older. But try not to make too much of a big deal out of it, and your son probably won't make too much of a big deal about it.
