More information is needed to accurately answer your question. Your son will not be able to petition for you until he is 21. However you may or may not be able to apply for permanent residence but more info in needed on you immigration history. If you are ever placed in removal proceedings (God forbid), you can apply for cancellation of removal based on your years and the hardship to your son.
You should speak to an experienced immigration attorney about all your options.
There is no program that allows that. If you were in removal proceedings you could seek a relief from removal called cancelation of removal which, if granted, does lead to a green card and is directly correlated to your son's condition. Consult with an immigration attorney for more information.
You are most likely eligible for a green card if you are in removal proceedings before an immigration judge through a process called cancellation of removal. You cannot have any convictions that make you removable or inadmissible, you must have been in the US for more than ten years, have been a person of good moral character and also have a qualifying family member whose life would be severely impacted if you were not allowed to stay in the US. You should consult with an immigration attorney.
