three years ago when i met my husband, i knew he had a son. and i took him in like my own.. at the time he was 3, his mother has never been a part of his life. she left when he was about three months. and has only looked back when she gets pregnant by other men.. and all of the sudden her maternal instinct kicks in and she all of the sudden wants to be part of all her kids lives, and after about three months shes done and is not heard of for awhile.. so this has been going on for three years and now that he has started kindergarten, he has began to ask where's my real mom? we don't look alike? how can you be my mom? you're not my mom your white (i'm brown) and i'm not?..
as a mother this hurts me.. i really don't know how to handle it.. how would you handle?
looking for advice! thanks!
