Painting, singing, theater, crafting jewelry – these are the arts that grace Peyton’s life. Gail, Peyton’s Permanency Specialist at Ampersand Families’ personal favorite is her writing. At a recent meeting at her school, her English teacher remarked that Peyton was like “a young Emily Dickenson.” Peyton gave Gail one of her poems on her last visit – it’s amazing!

And how does Peyton grace the arts?

  • With her gentle soul.
  • By her thoughtful actions towards others.
  • In her kind manner and love of beauty.
  • By her unique way of seeing the world.


About Me Peyton has a sweet, friendly, caring way about her. She has a creative personal style – a little bit ‘boho-chic’ – which is often expressed through her love of making her own jewelry. Peyton’s other creative pursuits include drawing with pastels, painting, and creative writing. She is an animal lover (especially cats – she would love to tell you the story of her black and white kitty, ‘Moo!’). Peyton is funny and likes to laugh, loves music and appreciates its power to pick her up when she’s down, and she is very family-oriented.
