I don't have any family and friends to ask for help.I don't wanna go back to Ukraine because I know it's better for my son to stay here.Im afraid if his dad is citizen he can take my son away from me because I'm immigrant
Based on what you have indicated, there would be no work authorization available. That said, we do not know all the specifics of your case. Set up a consultation with a qualified immigration attorney to review all options.

Your fact pattern does not indicate that you can request an employment authorization document at this time. I suggest that you visit with an experienced immigration attorney to explore your options.
Well.. Based on the fact pattern presented, you have no way of getting employment authorization. There is no special program for people form Ukraine. There is no special program for undocumented parents of US born children. There is no special program for people in a relationship with someone who appears to be a USC or LPR . The relationship which sounds rather abusive at least as described by you. Talk to an immigration lawyer if you want answer to your specific questions which would go beyond analyzing the general description you offered.

Dobrae utro. I read your post carefully. Please explain why you and the father of your child haven't married. What is his immigration status? Is he also from Ukraine? You say that "if his dad is citizen he can take my son away from me" so I assume the father is not a US citizen. The bottom line, the окончательный ответ (to be sure you understand) is, is it possible to find a way to have a healthy relationshiop as a family -- or not? If yes, then explore it through a counselor. Apart from immigration law, it will be the best solution. If in fact the man can become a US citizen, then within immigration law, it can offer a good solution. I suggest you google "family counselors" and "women's abuse centers" and "victim assistance networks" -- they exist in every city and town, to help people like you. Удачи!
