When you get back from your trip, take a look at the Expat Tax section here on the forum. If you only make $10,000 or so, you aren't going to owe any US taxes anyhow (due to the standard deduction, now combined with the personal exemption) - but starting in 2018, there's no further exemptions for "dependents."

There is something called the "Additional Child Tax Credit" which may be refundable in part for 2019 - but I'll leave it to someone in the Expat Tax section to explain the details to you.
