The coronaloxs chapter free waiting forMarvel. It's the waiting, I've, never known time to move sotortuously slowly, it's utterly excruciating. I don't think I'm an impatient man, not,I think, there's anyone else. In fact, people have remarked on my patiencebefore I would say I'm very good at waiting, but this this is beyond what anyone coun beexpected to call with. This is inhumane. I've waited an lot of things beforethings are wanted to happen things it didn't want to happen. Things ofimportance and things hat tone her to be nothing at all. I've waited on things that didn't evenknow I was waiting on, but you you are the hardest bit of waiting. Ihave ever done. We have been waiting a long time foryou not just waiting. We looked for youfirst, you should know that that we've been looking for you. We spent two years trying to find youon our own, but we couldn't so me and...

...your mom had to get some help from theHospital Ivy F. But you don't need to know that the point is for five years. Theyhelped us and a couple of times we almost had you and then this one timewe got really really close. Like you were there, we glimpsed you and then at the last minute you slippedthrough our fingers into the mist. It was hard. It was hard to get soclose and then I thought I was going to lose your mumtoo, but we didn't. That is not what happened. I thought we might give up. I thought we might just let the idea ofyou drift away, but that never happened either because- and this is importantso listen- We loved you so fucking much even then, and your mom wer you're going to pit this oforyourself soon, but your mom is te on. She calls it being strow. I haven't thepast calle to other things and I'm very sorry for thet, but you should know itwas hard more than me. It was because of her that we screwedup every last bit of our courage and we decided to go look for you again togive it one last chance all on nothin and can you believe in? Will you not just rigt there in the very last place we could havelooked? Oh thank God, e'r notging through thatnow the IVF thing I mean people have been waiting months now,it's caunseled Postponedin, definitely and with every passing month or chancesor finting their own yew decreases. I don't know if I could have called Inow po people, but it doesn't change the fact that Ishould be there with you. Now we yep your mum and I never imagined ina million years that I would not be...

...there. Believe me this. All of this wasnot in the meticulously thought out birth plan. We plann this thing like a assortionseleven. At no point was I not going to be present for this. I was meant to bethere. Of course, I was going to be there, but this decision was taken out of myhands. There's nothing. I have ever wantedmore than to be there with you right now. Believe me, it's killing me. I wanted to welcome you to hold you. Iwanted to be there so that when you arrived, you would see me. You wouldthink that I was your Daddy, then the whole world has gone andchanged and the blink of an eye. I don't even know how this happened. Itwould have guessed this could happen. I still not understand that some guy ate about and Chaina and allof a sudden. I can't be there when my first child is born. I mean how is thateven a thing that can happen, but it has here we are do you know you were during the daythey announced the locktown Monday twenty third of March, and wewere both in he right panic. You Mom, and I I caln't believe it the distancewe had come and knower this. We almost almost allowed heurselve tobelieve that you were actually going to be here at the beginning. We didn'tdear to we kept your secre as long as we could.We were too scared to acknowledge you a low just in case calling you by namewould somewhon make you less likely freighten you away. Eventually we couldn't keep it in. We just couldn't and not just because people couldobviously see that you were on your way...

...for themselves b because waiting foryou changed US completely. The johnney spilled outfulness, Wer Giddy, with anticipation. We wereterrified with anticipation, we Wele Besaye thourselves and all the timewaiting waiting waiting, and I still can't believe HEU easargoing to be here.
