You deserve to know your father. Make your step father feel as tho he's not losing you, by telling him so. Tell him that he's always going to be your dad, but that you need to know your real dad to, to be complete. If step father can't deal with that, i think he's in the wrong, not you. I'm not sure how to tell you to handle that situation other than to have a serious heart to heart with your step dad (from the sound of it, that may not help, but you can always say you tried). Good luck.
