PRLog - Mar. 18, 2012 - ATLANTA -- What would you do if you learned your unborn baby will be disabled?  This is a subject that no many want to talk about; however, writer, producer and director Yvonne Pierre has decided to combine her passion of storytelling to touch on a topic that’s much avoided.  Yvonne Pierre says, “I believe in order to empower children we must first empower the parents.  I hope to do this through a story that is entertaining and uplifting.  But whether the audience has a child with special needs or not, I hope people will walk away looking at any obstacles that they face differently, feel inspired and start the discussion about Down syndrome.”  

April 7, 2012 at 6:00 P.M. at the 14th Street Playhouse in Atlanta, GA, Y Pierre Productions presents THEN YOU STAND, a story about a newlywed couple excitedly expecting their first child.  Then, their unborn is diagnosed with a disability that leads them to question their relationships and beliefs. A turn of events forces them to reclaim their relationship, acceptance of their baby and ultimately their faith. In life, we face many challenges, THEN YOU STAND is an empowering stage production that will leave audiences with a profound message that no matter what the circumstance, there’s a bigger picture.

The proceeds of THEN YOU STAND will benefit Emory Down Syndrome Research.  If you’d like to be a sponsor or make a donation, contact Yvonne Pierre at Yvonne@ypierre.com.  Tickets are available now through 14thstplayhouse.org, Seats are limited.  Also, visit thenyoustand.com for details.  

About Emory DS Research:

Emory University of Medicine, Department of Human Genetics offers a range of services for families of individuals with Down syndrome including their DS Clinic, research, clinical services and education.  Their primary research goal is to learn more about the cause of Down syndrome and its related medical problems. Through current research, they hope to uncover new information about:  

•  What causes an extra chromosome 21 to be packaged into an egg or sperm?
•  Are there any important factors in a person's history that may increase the chance for having a child with Down syndrome?
•  How does the age of a woman influence the behavior of chromosomes during the formation of an egg?
•  What genetic and/or environmental variants play a role in the susceptibility of specific medical problems associated with Down syndrome? Where can we intervene to reduce the occurrence of these medical problems?
