There was a blind girl that hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, “If I could see the world, I’d marry you”. One day someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, “Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?” The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn’t expected that. The thought of looking at him for the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying; “Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.” This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what our life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations. Today before you say an unkind word – Think of someone who cant speak. Before you complain about the taste of your food -Think of someone who has nothing to eat. Before you complain about your husband or wife – Think of someone who’s crying out to GOD for a companion. Today before you complain about life – Think of someone who went too early to heaven. Before you complain about your children – Think of someone who desires children but they are barren. Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn’t clean or sweep – Think of the people who are living in the streets. Before whining about the distance you drive -Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet. And when you are tired and complain about your job – Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job. But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another -Remember that not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one MAKER. And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down – put a smile on your face and thank GOD you’re alive! via adrienne

General information

Meet the director: My name is Juanell Fincher and I reside in Fairfax County's community of Reston. In 2008, I was introduced to Neighborhood Networks through Terraset Elementary School. This was my first encounter with services from Fairfax County. Reluctantly, I accepted their help and in doing so, learned to trust people again. Later that year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I fell so far behind in my finances that I did not have the means to support my family. Nearing eviction, my workers at Neighborhood Networks referred me to the shelter. On December 15, 2008, I had surgery and the next day I signed up my family up to receive services as a homeless family. We were assigned to a room at the Katherine K. Hanley Family Shelter, in Fairfax. There, I began to learn even more about myself and my family’s needs. My children also received the help they needed to get through such a difficult time in our lives, such as counseling and tutoring. During our stay at the shelter, I was interviewed and selected for Reston Interfaith’s transitional housing program. While in this program, I continue to be reintroduced to myself over and again. I have taken advantage of every opportunity offered, allowing myself to grow and acquire the necessary skills to protect myself and my family from this traveling down the same path again. I have learned that I am multi-faceted gem! I have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share, and the drive to give back to those who helped me and other families in need. But there still remains one problem; I have not seen anyone who looks like me. And those providing assistance do not really understand my struggles because they have not been where I have been. I had to make myself believe that trust has to build the understanding that as human beings, they too will be able to relate to me in this light. This way of thinking can be quite a challenge for some to contend with. As an African-American, I recognize that Fairfax County and other organizations have not been able to address the cultural needs of families in the Reston. With that in mind, I decided to start New Beginnings for Life out of a need; the need to provide assistance and show others like me that after you've hit rock bottom there's no place left to go but up!
