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.

Peyton has lots of interests, but sometimes when she is overwhelmed by her moods and emotions, she can struggle with motivation to take part in life. With that in mind, a good family for Peyton would be patient, creative, and enthusiastic motivators while providing her with structure to her life. Peyton also has several bio-family members with whom she will want to maintain contact. Peyton is open to many family structures and would be happy to be nurtured and loved by a mom and dad, two mom, two dads, or a single parent.
