(WFLA-TV) Never underestimate the power of brotherly love.

His determination didn’t surprise his parents, who said the brothers are inseparable.

“They have an amazing bond. They’re best friends and they do everything together,” mom Alissa Aldrich told TODAY Parents. “The connection and the love that they share is truly unique.”
