'Born' is only used for childbirth. 'Borne' is used for everything else. I highly recommend typing in 'borne' at Dictionary.com and taking a look at the 'Usage Notes' section at the bottom of the page.
We expect those who already have this knowledge to take the trouble to use it as a mark of respect to those of us who take the trouble to help them.
