This month is NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) awareness month. 

As some of our followers may know, Cole and I were both NICU babies which makes this month even more special. In honor of this month we are going to be bringing you a series called “stories from the NICU”. Each post will feature a different family sharing their journey through the NICU. We will also include some educational facts, information, and resources along the way so be on the look out for more “Stories from the NICU”. 

If if you would like to share your story either as a NICU survivor, parent or even a NICU nurse please feel free to Email us at ournotsotypicallife@gmail.com

You may be wondering what makes our relationship so unique... Cole has Asperger's, and I (McKenna) have Cerebral Palsy. The challenges of life, coupled with our disabilities can make for a pretty interesting day-to-day life. In fact our life sometimes seems like anything but day-to-day. ​I suppose the same can be said for our relationship from the beginning. We started dating just over 2 years ago and decided that we wanted to have a courtship than your typical dating relationship. The purpose of showing people our lives, is to show people that disability doesn't need to stop you from reaching your goals. You can still go to college, live independently, get married, and even have a family regardless of the cards you are dealt. We may not be your typical couple. we may not live "normal lives" but that doesn't stop us from living the best life we can!
