Saja Salman (seen on Little People, Big World) had surgery; send a card

An update on one of the children seen on Little People, Big World during the episode about the family from Iraq who has since moved to Idaho, underwent surgery.



Saja Salman had surgery and unfortunately there have been some setbacks - including a collapsed lung and continues to have a rough recovery.

People are being encouraged to send cards to Saja if you wish. The address is:

Attn: Saja Salman
IDAA
P.O. Box 759
Kuna, ID 83634

If you choose to send hand-written cards to Saja, you're asked to print. The older sister you've seen on the show (without dwarfism) will read your card to Saja -- she was taught by reading large print as opposed to cursive.

Please keep Saja and her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. Also if you wish to make a donation (you can send a check by mail or a very easy paypal method), please visit this website:

http://www.dwarfchildren.org/

All and any donations are appreciated. Russell Hayes usually personally writes a thank you note to anyone who donates, along with the most recent update on how the children are doing.

And if you're in the dark about what any of this is about or missed our original item with Russell Hayes and his heart-felt words, you can read it here:

Thats such a sweet idea Spirits. Even if you can't afford to donate we should all send a card.
