Well, in truth, some kids do indeed wet the bed for may years. It is very common until age 9 (12 percent of kids still wet the bed at night if they are sound sleepers, they don't get the signal to wake up). And some kids will do that until around age 15 believe it or not. They just aren't getting the signal to wake up when in heavy sleep. Try some waterproof mats under his sheet. I'm sure he absolutely hates it more than anyone else as no 11 year old boy wants to do this. It's embarrassing for him and socially causes issues--- sleepovers become a scary topic. Never shame him for it. His parent should talk to his pediatrician about it as well.
The sister was adopted at what age? Perhaps her behavior is due to a bit of a rocky past. Glad she has a happy home but kids that are adopted often need more patience than your average child.
Your dad is 73 and adopted little kids? How did he do that? There are a lot of laws in the states regarding age an adopted parent can be. good luck
