When they were young, Gary Nisbet and Randy Joubert were adopted by different families. More than 30 years later, they were hired by the same Maine company. Customers remarked on the resemblance; and then the men found out they really were brothers. After a Maine media blitz, the family got bigger — their half-sister turned up.

LINDA WERTHEIMER, host:

A surprise family reunion in a moving van: Brothers Gary Nisbet and Randy Joubert were adopted by different families, but over 30 years later, they were hired by the same company in Maine. Customers remarked on their resemblance, and then the brothers found out the truth. After a Maine media blitz, the family got even bigger. Their half-sister turned up as well. It's MORNING EDITION.
