WALDOBORO (NEWS CENTER) -- It's a story that would be unbelievable if it weren't true.

Gary Nisbet and Randy Joubert are in their mid-thirties, and never knew each other until they started working together this summer at Dow Furniture in Waldoboro.  People said they looked alike.  Then, Randy started putting the pieces together - and figured out they are brothers.

Randy says he was taken from his parents as a baby and adopted by a family in Waldoboro.  Gary was taken at age three, and adopted by a family in New Harbor.  Earlier this year, Randy went to the state to find out the names of his birth parents, and that's when he found out there had also been a brother.

But all he had was a first name and a birth date.  One day on a delivery, after yet another person said they looked alike, Randy started asking Gary questions.  That's when they discovered they are full brothers.  To make it even more amazing, the two grew up in the same county, went to rival high schools and now live just a few miles apart in the same town. 

The people at Dow Furniture says they all cried when the brothers shared the news. Says one co-worker, "I was so happy for them because they're two wonderful guys."
