My son's biological father has just been incarcerated and is looking at facing several years in prison... I'm remarried and my son recognizes my new husband as his father, but still knows he has a REAL father. My son has seen his father once since the divorce started back in 2005. My hubby and I are talking about ending my ex husband's parental rights and having an adoption started... however I can't decide if its right to tell my son that his REAL father is in prison and why he's in prison (after the divorce and all the domestic abuse my ex husband continued to stalk me and make death threats, etc) I don't want to confuse him, but I don't want to lie to him or have him resent me in the future for not telling him the truth. What would you do?
