(NYT76) NEW YORK -- Feb. 21, 2006 -- UKRAINE-ORPHAN -- Raisa Skakun, 12, with gifts in hand, arriving at her new home on Sunday, Feb. 19, 2006, in Coney Island, Brooklyn. Immigration officials had reconsidered her case, urged on by an outpouring of concern after Raisa's story was detailed in an article on Oct. 14, 2005, in The New York Times. Still, the road to the Jan. 24 approval of the fourth petition on Raisa's behalf was not simple. This time, however, Raisa's champions included influential public officials and private citizens.
