Someone Worth Accepting Now (SWAN)


SWAN is such an amazing organization my family and I love then so much. All the gifts they work so hard on handing out every year during the holidays is so heart felt. Not only do the help the children but they also help the parents year round. Thank you SWAN for everything you do and for everything you have taught us. We are so blessed to have you in our community. God Bless.

S.W.A.N is an organization that supports victims and survivors of Domestic Violence.

Somebody needed this today. 🌷

With all my heart I urge you to heal.
Take back the power that was stolen from you, right the wrongs, slay the demons and open that Pandora’s box you're keeping so very tightly closed.
You have one life sweet one, and you deserve it to be beautiful.
You deserve to know what it’s like to be free of the pain they gave you.
You deserve to heal and every day you're not healing, you're carrying on a cycle you did not ask for.
If I can ever urge you to do just one thing my friend, it’s to heal.
Just by realising how broken you are.
And how very brave you’ve been.
That’s the key to the box.
Turn it.
It will hurt for a while but you know about hurt already.
It will free you.

Just heal.

At 2:00 p.m. today, 4/17/2023, the family notified the Missing Persons Awareness Network NFP 501(c)3 that the Lutz family had been located in Arizona and were 'safe'. While that leaves many unanswered questions, and together with the family, we do not believe the children are actually 'safe', the family and our organization did everything we could to create awareness, and know that they are alive. Thank you to each of you who supported the family, help spread the word, share information, and do what it takes to come together for one family. We appreciate each and every one of you.

Stephen (44), Monica (34), Aiden (11) & Nicholas Lutz (9),
February 10, 2023,
Newton, Jasper County, IL

The father, Stephen Lutz was required to stay away from his wife and children because of domestic violence issues within the family. No one has heard or seen the children since February 10, 2023. Steven & Monica have both not answered their phones. The phone was pinged February 11, 2023 in Indianapolis, Indiana, and again February 14, 2023 in Richmond, Indiana. His adult daughter requested a missing persons report filed for the family to the Newton Police Department Illinois (where the family lived) and was denied. There is no missing persons report today per our conversation with the Newton Police Department 4/2/2023. The family has not been seen or heard from since, which is now over seven weeks missing.

The Missing Persons Awareness Network will be going to the area tomorrow to investigate and do a live video here on this page. Please follow our videos to get the notification, to join us in real time.
