You would need to contact your local Congressperson regarding a private bill, but it is highly unlikely that you would be sponsored for one.

As long as you are eligible to extend your H-1B, then there is no need to look to humanitarian request options at this time. However, I cannot foresee that a humanitarian parole would be given to you & your dependents for 15 years.

Your best option is to be petitioned for foreign labor certification, assuming you have enough time left on your H-1B visa, & then just keep extending your H-1B until you can apply for adjustment of status.
