Help me Keep my Girlfriend

Hello, my name is Chingiz and I study computer science in Philadelphia. Due to how dense and expensive the program is, I have very little resources to go home while taking classes. I was working really hard in order to find a job after graduating from my undergraduate school and received a couple of great job offers. Unfortunately, because of bureaucracy and visa issues, I am unable to accept them until I complete graduate school. I was very excited to be able to see my loved once, but all my plans were ruined. In addition to that, my parents were not granted a visa to the US. There are not enough US consuls in Russia caused by the political tensions between the two countries. I ended up with close to no time or money to go and see my girlfriend Elmira for the next 2 years, while not having seen her for almost a year already. It is really hard for us to be away from each other for so long and I really miss her. All I ask for is the possibility to surprise Elmira and my parents by arriving on her birthday.
