Family Is Of the Heart (by BettyHT)

SUMMARY:  The Cartwright brothers do not resemble each other. Many have remarked upon that, but there is a good reason for them looking so different from each other–they had different mothers and more.  However, they are still brothers because there is something more important than who is present at your birth.  The family learns to accept that principle.
