Instant Mom, by Nia Vardalos

Nia Vardalos, talented actress, director, and writer, has written a memoir called INSTANT MOM about adopting her daughter as a preschooler from U.S. foster care. Read an exclusive excerpt on the Adoptive Families site (also in the March/April 2013 print issue of Adoptive Families):

We promise that the entire book is as good as this excerpt! The book will be released on April 2.


FYI, I read this book and it is phenomenal! Amazing how similar all of our stories are in the beginning.
