Hi.

For the past several years, I've been studying a great deal about the Catholic and Orthodox churches. I come from a traditionally Catholic family, but I'm not baptized and my family hasn't practiced since my mother was a young girl.

At the moment, I feel that the Orthodox faith might be correct, but I'm not entirely sure! So here I am to converse with Catholics.

Welcome to our little corner of Cyberspace. I see you're asking questions already, and have gotten reply from Fr. Kenobi. That's excellent; he's one of the best responders to the tough questions we have. :)
