I am a single mother of a 2 and 1/2 year old boy. His father has never met him and doesn't want to be involved in his life, although he does pay the court mandated child support. I am pretty sure he has never told any of his relatives about me and my son. I feel bad that my son will never know his relatives on that side of the family. Is anyone else in this situation? Should I try to find his paternal grandparents and see if they want to be a part of his life?

First I would find out who they are and what type of people they are. If they are decent people, then I would say absolutely introduce them. Your son needs to know he has another side of family he can count on.
