Hundreds of potential parents trusted Cleveland's University Hospitals to care for their future children. But a failure inside UH's fertility center leaves those women wondering if their chance at motherhood has been lost.

Earlier this month, the temperature rose inside a liquid nitrogen tank storing thousands of eggs and embryo, meaning the future of nearly 1,000 patients may have been compromised.

How did this happen? How are the affected patients doing? Who will be held responsible?

The answers are still forthcoming.
