It was a first for local photographer Lynda Cummings.  The first time she participated in The Waiting Child Heart Gallery.

The Waiting Child Heart Gallery opens on Sept 14th at the Oklahoma Aquarium in Tulsa.  Some of the finest Oklahoma photographers, the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Foundation and NEWSChannel 8 have joined together to bring the young faces of children who need family to the public.

Cummings joined her husband Tom in volunteering to photograph a Waiting Child.

“We really enjoyed the experience,” Cummings said.

The Waiting Child Heart Gallery exhibit will be on display at various locations throughout the year.  Typically it will also be displayed in the rotunda at the State Capital.
