This almost seems like a legal question that should be addressed to your attorney or other court advocate. The only thing I would suggest is to seek out a psychotherapist for talk therapy (counseling) with whom you are comfortable. The child welfare system is concerned with safety of the home environment and parents' stability. By engaging with a therapist individually for a period of time, s/he will develop enough knowledge of you as a person to be able to write a report either that is favorable returning your son to your custody, or recommending further actions for you to take to prepare for that.

Best wishes to you.

You should speak to your GP or mental health service for a re-referral or for psychology input.
It would also seem appropriate to seek legal advice re: getting your kids back.  Having a process in place may also help you feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel.
