For the Syrian refugees who arrived before the U.S. stopped accepting them, life in America means facing a series of hurdles and firsts. It's everything from learning a new language to driving in the snow for the first time.

Laura Benshoff (@LEBenshoff) from WHYY checked in with Moustafa and Amal and their two young children, who came to Pennsylvania from Syria in November 2016. They asked to use only their first names, because they still have family in Syria they don't want to endanger.
