Answer
Hi,

A withdrawal cannot generally be reversed. Therefore, a new I-130 petition should be filed. Since you are now a U.S. citizen, you can consider K-3 visa classification sponsorship as per http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a in order to expedite.
