Very funny and at the same time truthful. Not your regular celebrity autobiography. Refreshing.

I haven't adopted, but parenting is the same no matter how the child arrives. I laughed out loud at some of their experiences.

bham2013 Very readable and relate-able, the actress and screenwriter shares her journey to parenthood. This inside look at one experience with the fos-adopt system both shares some of the ups and downs of parenthood and introduces another route to domestic adoption. Entertaining reading whether or not you want to adopt!

The cover caught my attention and I was not disappointed! What a funny and heartfelt book.

I love that Vardolos focused her book not on her pain and disappointment but on the circumstances that led her to her beautiful and outgoing three-year-old daughter.
Recommended reading for those interested in adoption, if you don't mind the totally irrelevant but entertaining side stories.

Using humor to describe a small part of the crazy world of foster care = great entertainment + useful information. Loved it!
