If your friend sponsors your wife and son and they get a visa number as a resident alien, you will also have a visa number available to you because you are married to your wife. So when her Petition is approved, you will be approved also. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) does not like to separate families and so they give a visa number to the spouse of the person who has been approved for a visa.
