Separation/ Divorce: How Does it Effect a 4 yr. old?

Sadly, my husband and I have separated and are on our way to getting divorce. I'm staying at my moms for now, and of course my son is with me. He thinks we've been on vacation this whole time, it seems. When he says "home", he's talking about daddy's house. His bed is still there, etc. He and I share a room at my moms and there wasn't room for all his things to come with us. I also didn't want to freak him out if we were going to go back at some point. As it stands, this seems to be a permanent move.
I'm wondering how he processes all this at his age. My husband is not his biological father, but the only father he;s known. He was only 1 when we got together so I'm pretty sure he doesn't even remember being without him. My husband wants to continue to be my son's father, of course, and I wouldn't dream of taking them away from one another, as he is a wonderful father. We just don't get along ... but he's a good person, in general.
Any opinions or suggestions are welcome and very much appreciated! Thanks.
