It's a family friendly neighborhood with park, healthcare, public transportation, schools within walking distance.
Dia de Los Muertos is our favorite holiday. It incorporates fun, spirituality, family time, and delicious food.
Our happy places are Lake Temescal and Echo Creek.
Our best vacation was at Big Sur, where we celebrated our 6 year anniversary.
We're both in Central Valley CA and met each other in Berkeley CA.
We want to participate in an open adoption to raise a child and share those experiences with you and others. Our community is diverse and provides many opportunities to learn and have fun. Our families get together for holidays to share food and each other’s company. Each of us has siblings. We support each other with our life activities. We are a family of mixed cultures.

My name is Lucina, but you can call be Luci! I’m an active person who enjoys riding my bicycle and hiking. I enjoy the physical movement and the connection I feel with nature when I’m
engaged in these activities. Something that helped nourish me mentally and spiritually during these past 2 years has been taking care of my plants and taking up bird watching. I’m looking forward
to sharing these interests and activities with a little one.
About Scotty: I am someone who likes to stay busy. I enjoy watching and playing sports. I am interested in reading and watching movies. I enjoy getting outside and taking hikes. I have a lot of tattoos
and enjoy the artistic aspect of tattoos. I like collecting shoes and
reading comic books.
We love living in Oakland because of its abundant nature. We
especially love visiting Lake Temescal. We also love the amount
of local art and wonderful restaurants in our community. We
enjoy the weather here as it is never too cold or too hot. We
especially love participating in our local “Dia de Los Muertos”
festival. It’s fun, spiritual, and delicious.
Luci: My parents are Mexican
immigrants who become
naturalized citizens in the 1990’s.
They are Monolingual Spanish
speaking but are able to speak
in basic English phrases. Both of
my parents enjoy sharing foods
they ate as children. My mom is
“world famous” for her Mexican rice. My nieces and
nephew always ask for it when they visit grandma.
My dad grows chiles and nopales in the back and is
always ready to make salsa to share. When we get
together there is Mexican music playing in the back
while we enjoy eating our tacos made by my dad and
my younger brother Jerry (Gerardo). I have 3 brothers
Chuy (Jesus), Loop (Guadalupe), Jer (Gerardo) and 1
sister Cristi (Cristina). We all grew up in the 90’s and
have an eclectic music preference. From DMX, Prince,
Jenny Rivera, to Slipknot. My siblings would welcome
a child and share their music and 90’s wisdom they
picked up in their youth.
Scott: I have a loving family. We want to help a child have
a loving home that they can be a part of. My family
cares about giving children the opportunity to live full
lives as themselves. A child that we raise will be shown
compassion by family members.
We want to teach a little one Spanish and Mexican customs. We
want to provide a loving home where a child can develop their own
identity and experience life in a way that allows them to be who
they are. We want you to be part of that journey with us. We believe that we will be parents who will provide a child with opportunities to have a life full of good experiences. We want to provide a safe environment that includes plenty of love and joy.
