The Human Aspect of Steinar

Growing up I was neglected by my mother. She scared me at times and struggled with her drinking. Since my mother was well known, we worked very hard to keep up appearances as a family. I eventually blamed my mothers drinking on myself. This was partly because I was adopted and didn’t feel like I truly belonged in the family.
