My 2 cents -

Especially and specially are adverbs.

Especially means ‘particularly’ or ‘above all’:

She loves flowers, especially roses.

I am especially grateful to all my family and friends who supported me.

Not: Especially I am …

We use specially to talk about the specific purpose of something:

This kitchen was specially designed to make it easy for a disabled person to use.

He has his shirts made specially for him by a tailor in London.

Especially can also be used to mean ‘for a particular purpose’:

I bought these (e)specially for you.
