Leonid Bereslavskiy asks every day, “Where’s Papa?” Yulia Bereslavskiy gets “kind of jealous when I see other kids talking with their fathers.” Riva Bereslavskiy, their grandmother, just cries. Leonid, 5, and Yulia, 9, are brother and sister. They immigrated to Brooklyn 51/2 years ago from Latvia with their father, Vitaly, a single father whose wife died while giving birth to Leonid a few months before.
