In early 2007, Karen and Chad Merlet adopted then two-year old Gui, who had been living in one of China Care’s foster homes. Gui was born with a club foot. China Care provided the critical tenotomy surgery he needed to correct his foot and gave him love and care while he recuperated. Soon after his surgery, the Merlets, who are from Virginia, made Gui part of their family. The Merlets report that after undergoing an additional surgery here in the United States, Gui, who is now Jacob Merlet, is adjusting quite well to his newfound life.
