Then, when Steven was 14, his abductor brought home five-year-old Timmy - and Steven found the courage to escape with the child, whose tragic future he could foresee only too well. Could he find his real family? And, if he did, could they ever be a family again? I Know My First Name Is Steven will break your heart, then heal it.
