Book Synopsis

"Some families are created in different ways but are still, in every way, a family."

Writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Nia Vardalos firmly believed she was supposed to be a mom, but Mother Nature and modern medicine had put her in a headlock. So she made a choice that shocked friends, family, and even herself: with only fourteen hours' notice, she adopted a preschooler.

Instant Mom is Vardalos's poignant and hilarious true chronicle of trying to become a mother while fielding nosy "frenemies" and Hollywood reporters asking, "Any baby news?" With genuine and frank honesty, she describes how she and husband Ian Gomez eventually found their daughter . . . and what happened next. Vardalos explores innovative ways to conquer the challenges all new moms face, from sleep to personal grooming, and learns that whether via biology, relationship, or adoption—motherhood comes in many forms.

The book includes laugh-out-loud behind the scenes Hollywood anecdotes, plus an Appendix on how to adopt worldwide. Vardalos will donate proceeds from the book sales to charities.

Vardalos candidly shares her instant motherhood story that is relatable for all new moms (and dads!)

    This is a beautiful and candid book that every person who has even quietly thought about adoption should read. An honest peek into the journey of motherhood (and fatherhood).

  • International Adoption

    By CIRO San Juan
    I would like to congratulate Nia Vardalos for her ability to convey the relationship between her and her daughter Ilaria. I went the international route, and seeing that Spanish is my native language I adopted two girls, one from Paraguay and one from Colombia. The first one was one year old when she arrived, but the Colombian was at least four when she came to live with me. It is because of this child that I identify myself with Ms. Vardalos. It was hard. But the fruits of this relationship are many. They both graduated college, one of them has a master's degree. Both are happily married and I have two beautiful and very smart granddaughters. They are the joy of my life right now. Thanks again for this book. It was inspirational and full of blessings for someone like me.

    By boysmumas Very entertaining read. After a long week, I wanted a novel that was light and and this one was perfect. I felt so bad for for Nia as she tried to conceive a child and was overjoyed when she became a mom. For those of us who had children effortlessly, I think we take it for granted and forget about the many women who try and fail. She sounds like a wonderful mom.
