Mommy's little angel

Marshall Ball can't talk. So he listens to God. Everyone else listens to Marshall.

Marshall -- confined to a wheelchair, unable to speak, sickly, forever dependent -- wants to be a teacher, an angel, a pipeline to a nondenominational God, and a healer.

And because his parents are wealthy and devoted, because he is their perfect child and a faultless inspiration to thousands of people who never realized how good they had it until confronted with his story -- the same thousands who desperately hope that somehow their own lives can change nonetheless, perhaps through the words of this silent boy -- Marshall Ball gets to be all of that.

Who would ever tell him otherwise?

Troy Ball always knew there was something more to her handicapped son Marshall's painstaking utterances.

"It's completely up to him," Troy says. "It always is."
