A mother who works as a physician, brings in her 3-month old male infant for inconsolable crying. This evening, her husband was in the other room putting the infant to sleep when she heard a loud cry and he has since been inconsolable. When you examine the infant, you notice a bruise across his cheek and ear. You consider child abuse but recognize the mother is one of your colleagues who recently married a local police officer, and they seem very happy together. What do you do?
