Some Dreams Do Come True
Becky was born in the summer of 1957. She was left at Sacred Heart orphanage
in Birmingham, Alabama when she was almost two years old.
Milko James Sandi was almost three years older than Becky and was abandoned
at the same orphanage when he was only a few hours old.
Both were sent from the orphanage to live with the same foster parents
when they were five years old.
Becky became pregnant by Milko when she was almost thirteen. They were
forced to separate. Milko was transferred to a boys' home in St. Louis,
where he lived for more than twenty years before returning to Birmingham.
Becky had a baby girl and gave her up for adoption. By this time the foster
parents had become very fond of Becky Coates, although they never adopted
her. Twenty years later she is alone, and living in the same house, even
though the foster parents are deceased.
When reunited just hours after their foster mother's funeral, they rediscover
the Perfect Love they had so many years ago, but can even this perfect
love, born so many years ago in an orphanage, survive the challenge
of years gone by?

"I was pleasantly surprised with the realistic feeling it had in the
settings and the characters. I could actually see these characters
as Ms. Harvatich described them in her book. With the turning of every
page I found more pleasure in each and every character and situation that
Perfect Love presented."

"Once you started the book you just didn't want to put it down until
it was finished. I look forward to the next book to find out what
happens with Milko and Becky after they are married.

"This is a beautiful love story that would make a good movie. This is
the kind of stories that Hallmark Hall of Fame usually show."
"Perfect Love is the most unusual inspirational, precious
love story about teenagers that I have ever read. It's a love story for
everybody, but especially for orphans. The author captures the essence
of who those orphans are and what they are like. ... This novel isn't just
a love story. Not only is it scholarly written, it's educational as well."
