Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
—In the Fridge—
Mia opened up the refrigerator to get some milk and eggs to make some pancakes. However, when she closed the door she was alarmed to learn that she was no longer warm standing in front of the oven at the restaurant but now very cold!
As she looked around she discovered that she was now inside the refrigerator! Brrr!!!
She saw a staircase going into the freezer and ran up. In the freezer she saw two little girls building a snowman! They waved for her to come over and build the snowman with them!
How much fun they had! One little girl with white hair told Mia of her dream to build an ice castle. The other little girl with freckles and red hair and braids told of Mia of her dream for the first time in forever to be with the one she loved.
Mia was so cold. She borrowed the gloves and cape of her white-haired new friend. She put the cape on and the the gloves. First the glove for her right hand, then the glove for her left.
She looked up to say thank you and her friends were gone!
