Reviews

"Laugh-out-loud and painful-in-the-shins....The author holds nothing back as she chronicles the years leading up to the adoption." -- Kirkus "I expected to laugh. I didn't expect to cry. And I certainly didn't expect to laugh and cry on the same page. Instant Mom is for anyone whose life plan didn't follow the path they anticipated, and shows us that unexpected obstacles can lead to beautiful rewards." -- Rachel Dratch, author of Girl Walks Into a Bar "Funny, smart,and full of grounded wisdom that shines much-needed light on adoption I couldn't stop reading this hilarious and gripping rollercoaster of a story. Nia is an authentic, rocking female role model in so many ways...and being an instant mom is just one of them." -- Jewel An instant classic. Refreshingly candid for all parents-plus anyone considering adoption. (I was adopted!) We know Nia is many things: writer, actress, director, musical theater lover! Here, though, you learn she is a mom first. Pure, beautiful honesty." -- Kristin Chenoweth "Readers can feel the tension between desire to share her joy and good fortune and wish to maintain her child's privacy. Vardalos offers candor, humor, and poignancy in her account of adoption and parenthood as she pokes fun at parenting memoirs but delivers on emotional impact." -- Booklist "If you have ever considered bringing a child who isn't an infant into your family, it's the book you'll want to read. And if you just enjoy a good, honest memoir, it's the book for you, too." -- New York Times' Motherlode Blog
