When I let Maya go, Charlie moped for weeks on end. He sulked, he whined, he lacked any energy or usual gusto, he would go lay in his kennel, or hers for no reason at all, other than to lay in there and be depressed, he wasn't eating as much, and he was just in general, incredibly miserable. The ONLY things that pulled him out of it was sticking to routine, and distracting him with other things(getting out of the house, etc). It still took him several weeks to go back to being himself.
Shadow seems to like Charlie and have no issues with him, so I think we should definitely try to get them together again, more frequently(sorry about the other day btw), and even try a playdate in one of the yards to see how they do(I can clean mine up and get rid of any dangerous obstacles that Shadow might think are new friends, lol), because I think having a buddy to play with a distract her a little will help, and as Charlie seems to help calm her anxieties a little, I think he would be the perfect candidate.
Don't ever be afraid to ask for my help! As long as I have someone to watch D, I can come help and I enjoy our walks together when we get the chance.
Shadow will find herself again, she's probably thrown off by the change to her environment and pack with the anxieties that she has, and is trying to learn how to cope too. Just like you, she will find her way and she will learn that it's okay. You'll both be okay.
