    You are correct. You have the verb "to do" in "Where did" so the main verb is in the bare infinitive: grow, not grew. Just as you would NOT say "We did you went?"

    You have that first part "I want to know" so you don't have the inversion that you would have with the question alone: Where are you from? I want to know where you are from.
