Passing Through is a memoir from my earliest memories until the present day. I describes how I feel about my adoption, the people who adopted me and my extended family. There are stories and anecdotes about my education, military experience, my career in corporate finance and accounting and my life. Writing this has helped me come to terms with my adoption and make sense out of my life. My goals are that persons who have been adopted will find my stories useful and that corporate finance professionals will enjoy reading some of my deal stories, and that veterans will enjoy my war stories.
