Mother and Father have Baby.
After an evening out, Mother and Father return home to find their Baby appearing ill.
The next morning, although a pediatrician is not concerned, Mother and Father take Baby to the emergency room. Luckily.
There, Baby is diagnosed with broken ribs and bleeding behind his eyes, consistent with shaken baby syndrome.
Mother and Father are stumped, until they learn of their friend and babysitter’s confession to a third party.
Despite the babysitter’s confession though, Baby is taken into protective custody (and placed with his grandmother) for two more weeks as a result of the apparent abuse.
The Babysitter has been charged with felony child abuse but, fortunately, Baby is expected to make a full recovery.
