~*The Next Day*~

When we started this adoption journey many years ago we learned that our anxious one, Sunshine, would absolutely enjoy himself when we had special plans or were out on the town.  However, the next day was "the fallout" as we call it.

When the party's over and the fun is done....Watch out!

The acting out, the behaviors, the anger, frustration, etc.  This is no surprise to many who have adopted...it makes sense to us.  Our average kiddos can be a bit moody the next day, yet, they are able to get over it quickly. 

For our Sunshine this isn't always the case.  He can struggle for weeks, triggered by the end of the fun!

So, the day of his actual birthday, was the fallout day.  Its heartbreaking for us to see...We're praying that its over quickly for this little guy so he can enjoy himself!  He's utterly miserable (self-induced misery) when he's allowing anxiety to drive him.  

We're waiting for the Sun to shine, again!

Matthew 13:43
Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.
