Patrice Karst

“The Invisible String has been useful for us since we’ve moved and left friends behind. This beautiful story resonated with our daughter immediately, as they describe a string that connects your heart to everyone else’s that you love. Our girl immediately started naming everyone her string reached out to that was living far away and told us how she felt us tugging on her string when we were away from her last weekend. I truly believe we just created an embodiment of connection she can reference for her entire life.”– FROM “THE STIR: CAFEMOM BLOG
