to be honest i dont know. my son is now 4 and regularly see's his biological father but he dosnt know that. we visit his grandparents every week. his father also doesn't want anything to do with him.

my son call my partner dad, as we have been together for 3 1/2 years. at the moment he doesnt ask any questions, he doesnt know any different. i will tell him when he asks, atm he is happy i see no reason to complicate things for him. good luck
