I have never seen one in real life but have seen a couple pics that looked like me of her and I’m really drawn to this legend for some reason

Welcome to UM.

From your description "White witch that watched over children"  you must mean this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Llorona

I've changed the topic title for you and moved it to a more appropriate forum.

You need to put more, describe what it is, put in links and tell us what you think.

The only thing I know about the legend comes from an episode of "Grimm"... Seems like the legend is similar to a few other "violently remorseful spirits" legends from around the world...

It is not a white witch is is a woman who cries for her children. La Llorona - ( means the woman who cries) it is an old legend from Mexico about a woman who killed her children and then threw them in the Rio Grande.( Great River) When she realized what she had done she started crying and screaming at the same time) The legend goes that she was a very poor Indian woman who fell in love with a Spanish guard. They both fell in love and when his mother saw her she was very angry. She told him how can you be in love with this ugly dark thing you will bring down our name. The son was crushed but listened to her. Later he found a beautiful Spanish woman and would parade around with her. He came to the Indian woman and asked for his children and wanted them to live with him and his new Spanish wife. The mother (Indian woman) saw and heard him she was completely heart broken instead of letting him have her children she killed them and threw them in the river. She realized what she had done and then threw herself in the river too she died also. To this day many still hear her crying and screaming and floats around. Here is a song made for her

I forgot to add that when she begins screaming and crying she says "Hay mis hijos" which means "Ooh my children!."
