Mom Soares Sheila’s shared video begins with the older brother, Rafa, showing his little brother, Erick, his tattoo, and the little brother with Down syndrome is absolutely overwhelmed by the gesture.
He keeps on staring at the tattoo for a long time, speechless, before finally planting a sweet kiss on his brother’s lips.
Erick then caresses the tattoo for a while before looking back at his brother’s face and giving him a warm embrace.
Rafa’s tattoo is a likeness of Erick’s face crafted inside the mouth of a lion, perhaps representing the immense courage that his younger brother possesses. It sure impressed Erick and he seems to be delighted by the representation.
