Step 3 is not important for pediatric or any other residency.

Focus on Step 1 and CK high score and make sure you pass the CS from first attempt.

Your scores are pretty good. Around the average for matching in Pediatrics. You have a lot of experience, albeit very little in the US. You have a shot at success, I think.
