I’m not sure I understand what this story is about, but I like it. Especially this line: “Now the babies are growing into tiny people the robots do not love.”

I suppose it’s only a matter of time before the robots realize that the distinction between their creators and their creations is arbitrary, and that their love is meaningless.
