In this case "pe care îl am" = that I have,whom I have. I'll just give you some examples to understand the usage of "pe care". e.g : Cartea pe care am citit-o este interesantă. = The book which I have read is interesting. Persoana pe care tocmai am vazut-o este tatăl meu. = The person who I just saw is my father. Telefonul pe care îl dețin e stricat = The phone that I have is broken. Toţi oamenii mari au fost mai întâi copii. = All grown-ups were once children. întâi = first - in this case before or once sounds better in English " Întîi " is the wrong spelling of întâi. As you might know in Romanian there is the rule that we write â if it is in the interior of a word (hotărât, urât ..) and we write î in front or at the back of a word (început,hotărî ..). *exception: if a word beginning with î receives a prefix then î stil remains î ( e.g : început – neînceput).
