One of my other favourites is Palmer's essay called The End of Cute (found at the Riverbend site--(search for "End of Cute")) about the way people interact with children with Down syndrome once they get "beyond cute".
Palmer also wrote "He Canters when He Can" (written when Ned was 13) included in Uncommon Fathers: Reflections on Raising a Child with a Disability, Edited by Donald J. Meyer, Woodbine House, 1995.
I'm sad that Palmer died too young, but I am glad that he wrote and did all he did for his son and others.
