It didn't matter how much me and her talked about it she still asked other family members questions about him or talked about him to them. It was a idolized idea she had of him from what her friends at school says about their dads. (She hadn't seen her father for over 4 years his choice)
It was a really hard time for both of us as I didn't have the answers that she wanted but she has since gone back to not worrying about seeing her bio dad
It never bothered me as such because j was always open with her she had pictures of them together when they were a bang and knew she could ask me questions.
I have to say though I would bring it up with sil just tell her when she came over she was saying this to us, we didn't know how to respond so didn't say anything especially as she has (step father name) in her life. If she brings it up again how would you like us to respond?
This is what my parents did for me - was especially when Father's Day came up at school. My parents took my lead on this (so did the ex in laws ) I told them they could answer any of her question cause she is trying to work out how her family dynamics are. However not to give out to much personal information like - oh your exactly like your father he did that when he was little etc.
The sil would have probably have been hit with questions before so just take her lead on what you should do
