We are a young, active, fun-loving family. We met in 2011, and we both knew this was a strong connection. We love to spend our free time exploring new spots, hanging out with our friends, or hanging out at a baseball game. Justin was born in California, and Marcelino was born in Mexico. We both have careers in retail and love connecting with people. Both of us love to travel and enjoy the outdoors. We take an annual trip to Disneyland in October and at least two international trips every year. We love riding our bikes around the neighborhood or taking our three furry friends for a walk downtown or a nice hike. We both come from big families and love spending as much time with them as possible. We get together weekly for family dinners, host all holidays, and definitely don’t miss any opportunity to spend time with friends and family.
Our home sits in a very diverse neighborhood with lots of children. The town is very family friendly and is located in Northern California. We are walking distance to downtown, parks, swimming pools, and trails as well as the schools. The back yard is gated and great for the baby to play in the green grass and run around with our three dogs. There is a huge room off of the living room that will be the baby’s playroom, with lots of natural lighting to play on sunny days. The baby will also get a bedroom of his or her own that overlooks the back yard.
Our Extended Family
We both grew up surrounded by a lot of family. Justin is the middle child with two sisters and has over 20 cousins. We live within 20 minutes of both Justin’s sisters and parents. We get together every week on Sundays and have dinners with them. We spend all holidays with his family at our home.
Marcelino is the second oldest of six brothers. We visit Marcelino’s family in Mexico twice a year and usually spend New Year’s with them. Some of the greatest times with them are after dinner, when we all sit and have coffee and pastries before bed every night. Our families are beyond excited that we are going to bring another child into the family and extremely happy to support us.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always discussed having a child. We want to adopt to start a family of our own because of the large families we both have. We did a lot of research together to find out adoption was the path we wanted take to accomplish that dream. We want to continue to bring up a big family as we both come from big families. We want to teach our child about family and love and show them what family is.
