Everyone is born good because no one is born with hate in their heart. There is no baby on this planet that is bad from the beginning. All babies come from heaven and therefore can only express love until they are old enough to be tainted by society. Even children are very forgiving and do not hold animosity in their hearts toward people that treat them bad. For Example : I've met some abused children who loves their parents with all their heart. Even being abused they pray for their parents.

It's not clear what you're arguing for.
But as for the title of the argument I disagree. No, not everyone is born good, same way like not everybody is born bad.
Newborns don't have moral agency, the fact that they seem innocent and usually don't partake in aggressive activities doesn't make them good.
Children learn to be either good or bad. Until they can conceptualize morality you cannot define them as good or bad.
