Co-Workers Found They're Actually Long Lost Brothers

Their customers always told Randy Joubert and Gary Nisbet, co-workers at a furniture store in Waldoboro, Maine, that they look similar enough to be brothers. They always laughed it off, but when Joubert looked for his birth parents, he found out that he's been working side by side with his long lost brother:

Prefacing his line of questioning with the statement, “Don’t think I’m weird,” Joubert asked his co-worker a few pointed questions based on names and dates gleaned from his own adoption records.

Seconds later, Joubert realized that the man who had been on the other end of countless couches, mattresses and recliners since July wasn’t just a co-worker. Nisbet was the long-lost brother for whom he had been searching. [...]

It’s a story that seems too perfect even for a movie: Two brothers, born a year apart, grow up in adoptive families in neighboring towns and attending rival schools. As adults, each lives in Waldoboro but spends 35 years not knowing about the other’s existence.

Then they end up not only working for the same small business, in this case Dow Furniture in Waldoboro, but also riding together in the same delivery truck day after day.

But strangely, the story didn't end there - check out this report by Kevin Miller of Bangor Daily News: Link (Photo: Gabor Degre/ Bangor Daily News)

As a former adoption caseworker - this is just the sweetest story I've heard. Those not involved in adoption can't imagine how hard it is to track down birth relatives.
