Marshall and Coulton, now in their midtwenties, live at home, and Ball remains a hands-on mom. Meanwhile, thanks to the care-assistance provided by CAP, she is also free to serve as the company’s primary ambassador. After years of putting her own dreams on the back burner, Ball is living her bliss. “I never would have forgiven myself if I hadn’t done all I could for my boys while they were growing up,” she says. “I knew my time would come later in life.”
