Ok so you can use the connection I use in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLzuZiL6m1o
You will have to release the valve from the pex pipe cold line and use the T fitting from the video then push a 6" piece of Pex or copper into the other side of the T and re install the valve.
Here is some info about working with Push fit fitting like the valve and T.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEYrx09 ... 9&index=12

Thank you very much. I saw that but I didn't know if that was the way I should be going. Wish me luck.

Your existing cold valve for the kitchen sink looks like a push fitting, so it looks like all you need is just some scrap pex to put in between that valve and a new tee valve for your fridge line.

Good luck, but I think you got this!
