Newbie Witch Newbie pagan

I am Raven from Louisiana and when I first heard of Wicca was when my mama was studying alternitive Relgions in college. I grew very intrested in everything she learned. I felt as if someone spoke to me that was my family. Sadly by the age of 8 Iwas kidnapped but returned 8 months later by the police. My mother converted to christain and moved far away from where i know as home. After servial years 21 to be exact I found my way back to the Lordy and Lady and to this site. Now i never really done the fourm thing before so if this is in the wrong spot to introduce yourself sorry. I was not sure what to say.

Blessed Be Everyone!! :slight_smile: <3
