Jake and Ashley Lyerla are interviewed at their home, Tuesday, June 11, 2019, in Milroy, Ind.

Those limitations have been a problem for couples like Jacob and Ashley Lyerla, who needed to use donor sperm and eggs to create viable embryos after three heart-wrenching rounds of IVF using their own genetic material failed.
