Now when members of Church of the Redeemer dote on their grandchildren to the Rev. Frederick Robinson, he can enjoy the feeling of doting right back.

Robinson’s son, Michael, and daughter-in-law welcomed Ayla Kessler Robinson into the world Aug. 19. And although Rev. Robinson and Ayla have yet to meet, he has seen pictures.

“It’s just a wonderful feeling to know our family is now continuing to another generation,” he said.

Introductions are in order on Thanksgiving, when Robinson plans to travel to Rhode Island for a visit.
