Brazilian Man Shows Brother With Down Syndrome His New Tattoo–And His Reaction Left Us In Tears ????

Siblings often don’t get along. We’ve all heard stories of siblings being at each other’s throats. Conversely, sometimes sibling love runs deep. 

Erick Soares, who lives in Brazil with his mother Sheila and brother Rafa, has Down syndrome. His brother Rafa does not. But that hasn’t kept the two from connecting deeply—so deeply that Rafa got a tattoo of Erick wearing a lion skin.

A video of the reveal can be seen below.

And here’s a closeup of the ink in all its glory.

The boys’ mother posted on Facebook:

Look at my puppy’s reaction to the beautiful tribute, his face tattooed inside a lion’s mouth. The video is EXCITING. That’s why I saw Rafa asking Erick to make brave face.

She went on:

Out many battles, many approvals, many fights, many defeats, and many victories, but I never gave up on my children. And I won.

The video warmed people’s hearts:

Others offered up kind words for Rafa.

We’re not crying…we just put in our contacts.
