An obvious typing error. Good job Heidita didn't notice it first.

ojalá no hubiera nacido en absoluto. I have tried to answer this by using a previous answer given by Lazarus.

The sentence is fine, Eddy, but that "en absoluto" sounds a bit too much for me (and I can't explain why). "Ojalá no hubiera nacido nunca" sounds better.

However, none of these sentences have the idea of "Sometimes..." from the original one, and this "sometimes" is incompatible with "ojalá", which is absolute, due to this "May God...!" start.
