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 hilarious and poignant true
chronicle of trying to become a mother while fielding nosy “frenemies” and Hollywood
reporters. 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. Download and start listening now!
