Ian’s mother, father, and older siblings each have a 3-arrow tattoo in Ian’s honor. The arrows are symbolic of the three 21st chromosomes that result in Down syndrome and represent how the families of children with Down syndrome rise up and move forward. “Ian has brought our big family closer” says his mom. “He melts our hearts.”
