Her Big Fat Greek Adoption Story: An Interview With Nia Vardalos
GLOBE AND MAIL
As soon as we decided we were kinda-sorta ready to be parents, it happened. I’m extra super grateful that Tokki came to us easily (as “easily” as the whole childbirth and raising a newborn into a toddler thing can be, you know).
“I spare people the gory details,” Nia told me when I interviewed her last week for the Globe and Mail. “I don’t go into medical talk but I’m just honest about it, it happened.”
Nia insists she’s private, which may seem strange for someone who likes to “mine” her family “for fun and profit,” as she likes to say. But I get it. When you write material inspired by your own life, you have to be that much more clear about what you will and won’t reveal.
