Adopted in Love: Gumurryu-warratthuwan Mä-nuwatjinyayu (Box of 35)

Tax included.

Written by Rachel Herweynen
Translated into the Yolnu language of Warramiri by Daymanu Bukulatjpi and Garal’wuy Gurruwiwi
Illustrated by Salome and Katinka Moes


Adopted in Love is a heartwarming story of love, acceptance and sharing of life and culture told in both English and the Yolŋu language of Warramiri.

In 2017, schoolteacher Rachel and her husband Cameron moved to the remote homeland of Gäwa, on Elcho Island in the Northern Territory. Upon their arrival, they were adopted into the local Yolŋu family.

In this beautifully illustrated book, Rachel reflects on her adoption into the Yolŋu family and how it mirrors our own adoption into God’s family through his Son Jesus.


Teacher notes and supporting resources have been created to help teachers prepare a lesson around Adopted in Love.

The suggested activities and additional resources available in these notes are for students in lower primary, middle primary and upper primary / secondary. They reflect and link back to content in the Australian Curriculum: English, Humanities and Social Sciences.

After purchasing, a link to the notes will be included in the order confirmation.
