Answer
Unfortunately, your husband is the petitioner you are the beneficiary.  Your presence in the US is based on that petition.  Now that he has withdrawn it, which he has the right to do, your do not have a legal basis to remain in the US nor does your daughter.  If you remain beyond the time granted by CIS, the ramifications can haunt you for years.  Remaining beyond will result in future denials of non-immigrant visas (visitor, student, etc) in addition, if you were to marry another USC, you could possibly be denied residency.  I suggest you return home and avoid the potential heartache.
