Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents and we would love the opportunity to introduce ourselves to you. We, Peyton and Dean, live in Breckenridge, Colorado and love living in this active, family-focused community!
Both of us have lived in Colorado since 1996; we met in 2005 through friends; and we were married in 2008. Peyton moved from Atlanta, whereas Dean is from Ohio, a fantastic mix of southern hospitality and mid-western friendliness.
After multiple failed IUI’s and an unsuccessful IVF, we made the decision to adopt. We always planned to have children, and welcoming your child into our lives would be an incredibly joyous occasion!
As adoptive parents, we definitely want to keep the lines of communication open with you. We would provide updates on the child and his or her progress through life as regularly as you would like.
Peyton moved to Breckenridge in 1996, from Georgia, after graduating from Wofford College with a BA in Business/Economics. She has worked in the Hospitality and Ski Resort Industry for these last 19 years and is the Director of Sales for a small, privately owned property management company only a mile away from home. Her company is very accommodating and supportive of their employees with children.
As someone who enjoys the outdoors, weekends are spent exploring the surrounding mountains and catching up on life around the house. Peyton also enjoys travelling and looks forward to passing along experiences from around the world to her child.
Dean moved to Denver in 1996 and after 2 years in the city, moved up to the mountain town of Breckenridge. He worked as a computer technician for many years, and with his computer certifications, in January of 2011, he started his own successful computer company with a solid client base. Dean works from home, allowing for a flexible schedule.
Dean is an incredible athlete, from mountain and road biking to downhill and cross country skiing, so he is the one who keeps the household fit and trim. He loves to cook and makes sure both Peyton and the pets are eating and living well. He cannot wait to share his passions with his child and will ensure the entire family participates in this healthy lifestyle.
We met through friends in May of 2005. After a Memorial Day Weekend camping trip, Dean asked Peyton out on their first date. After 3 years of biking, hiking, golfing, skiing, even some surfing together, Dean proposed while mountain biking in Taos, NM. A year later we were married, on September 2008, in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the town of Breckenridge surrounded by family and friends and the gorgeous mountains.
Our community of Breckenridge is a wonderful place to raise kids, and our home is right down the street from a playground, and within two miles from 2 elementary schools and a large park. We have a 3-bedroom / 3-bath home with a fenced in back yard on a cul-de-sac. There are many families with children on our street and in surrounding neighborhoods.
As animal lovers, we came together with not just us, but also a regal cat named Zeus and a large, blue-eyed dog, Baxter. These were our first “kids” and they both lived long, healthy lives. We now have Gabe, a 5 year old cat, who we adopted from the local shelter and Roscoe, a fun-loving little Australian Shepherd mix, who was a rescue from the mid-west. While we adore Roscoe and Gabe, we would love to share our passion for animals with children and raise them with this admiration and respect for all living creatures.
We are looking forward to the pitter-patter of little feet being part of our lives and want to thank you for considering us for your beautiful child.
