Your son can file a relative petition when he is 21 years old, but you may not be eligible to apply for your green card here in the US. That is determined by your manner of entry and if you were the beneficiary of a filed preference petition or labor certification prior to April 30, 2001. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney.

I would need more information such as how you entered the US and if you have 245i protection. When he is 21 he may be able to help you. I recommend you have a full consult with a competent immigration attorney who can fully look at all aspects of your case.
