AMAZING!!!! Is this true? I received this email today regarding John McCain's wife.

In 1991, Cindy McCain came across a girl in an orphanage in Bangladesh. Mother Teresa implored Mrs. McCain to take the baby with severe cleft palate. She did so without first telling her husband. The couple adopted the girl who has had a dozen operations to repair her cleft palate and other medical problems.

They have a Family Foundation for children's causes.

She's active with 'Halo Trust' - to clear land mines, provide water and food in
war ravaged and developing countries.

She will join an overseas mission of 'Operation Smile', a charity for corrective surgery on children's faces.

Their adopted daughter's name is Bridget. There is a great interview with her on You Tube. I don't have the link, but I'm sure if you search for Bridget McCain it will come up. She's a beautiful girl! It amazes me that Mrs. McCain just brought her home without even talking to her husband first. I think they are a great family.

This is pretty cool. I did not know that about her. Too bad she's not running for president! lol
