New cards address infant loss

It’s hard to know what to say when someone suffers the unthinkable pain of miscarriage or infant loss. But thanks to a new local line of affordable, caring cards, there’s help.

“I had several miscarriages and lost a baby of 20 weeks way back when, and the feelings have stuck with me,” said Karen Ritz, a St. Paul-based children’s book author and the creator of Heart2Heart cards. “I wanted to create something with beauty and empathy.”

You can buy the cards at St. Patrick’s Guild at Randolph and Snelling in St. Paul and at karenritzcards.com, where you can also learn more about Ritz, the founder of the Grandycamp blog for grandparents.
