    Do you mean, "I had been raised in the US."

    If so I would use it responding to myself regarding a question like, " I wonder what they thought(will think) of my accent? I had been raised in the US. blah blah." or some other narrative situation. The cause of something can be tied to an event in the past, present or future.
