Publisher's Summary

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 14 hours' notice, she adopted a preschooler.

Instant Mom is Vardalos' hilarious and poignant true chronicle of trying to become a mother while fielding nosy "frenemies" and Hollywood reporters asking, "Any baby news?" With her signature wit and candor, she describes her and husband Ian Gomez's bumpy road to parenting, how they found their daughter, and what happened next. Vardalos includes a comprehensive how-to-adopt section and explores innovative ways to conquer the challenges all new moms face, from sleep to personal grooming. She learns that whether via biology, relationship, or adoption - motherhood comes in many forms.

In Instant Mom, Vardalos shares the terrifying joys of parenthood and for the first time reveals her stubborn optimism and perseverance on her trek to finally becoming a mom, instantly.

    "A great book for any parent or parent to be"

    I really enjoyed this book, and was sad when it ended. It's such a heartfelt and sweet story. It also brought tears to my eyes a few times, and it's funny as hell!

    Nia and Ian are so relatable as parents and as people. I wish I could go to one of their dinner parties!

    "Great for anyone adopting from foster care"

    It's nice to find a book that focuses on adopting through foster care, since there are not many. And having someone's personal experience is insightful. Although it could have done without all the name dropping and bragging...
