"Why me? Where was God?" Dinae Knox is a fourteen-year veteran of the foster care system in Illinois and the product of teenage, alcohol and drug addicted parents. She is from a single-parent and single-guardian home in a poverty-stricken and gang-dominated community on the Westside of Chicago. Despite the various mishaps in her life, she is a person who has beaten the odds and statistical predictions against her destiny. Her book, Bootstraps Laced with Faith, is an illustrated, riveting and true story of her triumphant recovery from extreme corporeal and sexual abuse, neglect, mental institutionalization, and crime with merely faith in a force she came to know as God. Through this work, along with its companion journal, and the author's nonprofit organization, Pro Se Services, Knox strives to encourage children and youth of hardship to chart their own path towards recovery, resiliency, and become persons of excellence; and, inspire people of stature to lend them a helping hand, listening ear, or soft shoulder.
