Your post would be a lot easier to read if you used punctuation.
So, what I am getting is that FIL only associated with the one child, not the others. I am guessing that he pays attention to the step son but not YOUR biological kids. FIL's wife disrespects you and even did so at your wedding. FIL only wants to bring a gift to your step son. Where is your husband in all of this? If he won't stand up for the other kids then I suppose it's up to you. Honestly, if the other kids don't care I would just let it go. If the other kids are hurt then you can tell him to keep the gift unless he can treat ALL of the kids the same.
