Ammar Farhan shares an afternoon meal Saturday with his wife Salwa Altaie and daughter Lina Jameel at their home in Chattanooga. The family recently moved here from Iraq and is slowly settling into their life in the United States. Farhan says he knows his family will live in the United States for several years, but they plan on returning to Iraq once it becomes safer.
