9780062231840: Instant Mom

In Instant Mom, Nia Vardalos, writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, tells her hilarious and poignant road-to-parenting story that eventually leads to her daughter and prompts her to become a major advocate for adoption.
 
Moments after Nia Vardalos finds out she has been nominated for an Oscar for the screenplay for My Big Fat Greek Wedding, she is alone and en route to a fertility clinic, trying yet again for a chance at motherhood.
 
Vardalos chronicles her attempts to have a baby, and how she tries everything—from drinking jugs of green mud tea, to acupuncture, to working with two surrogates. Finally, she and her husband, actor Ian Gomez, decide to try adoption and discover a free service: Foster Family Agencies. Then one day, the social workers "match" her with an almost-three-year-old girl, who she knows, instantly, is her daughter.
 
With her signature wit and candor, Nia Vardalos reveals what really came next—the truth of how she and her husband transitioned a preschooler into their home. Vardalos opens up about the bawling-tears and belly-laughter that all make up what it means to be...a parent.

From the Back Cover:

Instant Mom is a hilarious and touching memoir, chronicling how Nia Vardalos broke into the film industry, had dinner with the Queen of England, and then, impossibly, found her daughter when she was almost three years old. Even before she was filming My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Vardalos firmly believed she was supposed to be a mother. But as time went by, she realized that modern medicine and Mother Nature had her in a headlock. Suddenly, she made a choice that shocked friends, family, and even herself: with only fourteen hours' notice, she adopted a preschooler. Vardalos is refreshingly candid about what happened next. She wittily explores challenges all new parents face, plus includes a comprehensive how-to-adopt section. Ultimately, Nia Vardalos realizes that "some families are created in different ways, but are still, in every way, a family."

About the Author:

Nia Vardalos is the Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated writer and actress of such films as My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Connie and Carla, My Life in Ruins, and I Hate Valentine's Day, and co-writer with Tom Hanks of Larry Crowne. She lives in Los Angeles with her family, and donates Instant Mom proceeds to adoption charities.
