my heart is aching

This sweet little girl is missing. Some of you might remember my post from when my kids and I drove for what seemed like forever to go adopt this baby girl. Miss Bella has completely fit into our lives, I feel like I've owned her forever. My son loves her to pieces, she sleeps with him every night. My other Boston loves playing "rough" with Bella, finally someone her own size! Today I am sad to report that Bella is missing. We haven't been in our new house for a week yet so she is not familiar with the neighborhood, nor would any of our neighbors recognize her. Today after school my nieces were here playing with Logan. They were picking apples out of the tree in our front yard and kept coming in and out to bring me more apples. At some point Bella squeezed through the door and was gone. No one even noticed that she had gotten out. I've put up fliers and drove around the area for hours.
I put an ad on craigslist on the lost & found.
We're just praying that she is found and brought back to us safely. Even if she isn't brought back to us, I pray that a nice person has found her and is keeping her warm and feeding her, and will love her forever.
I feel as if we've betrayed her. We rescued her nearly 3 months ago and it was our duty to keep her safe and loved for the rest of her days. I neglected to put her collar with her tags on it. Now there is no way to connect her with us.

Please keep Bella in your prayers that she is at least safe. I know it's praying for a dog but she is a part of our family, she's one of my daughters.

You'll be greatly missed Bella, we will pray for your safe return!
