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:
