New Website Caters to Chinese Babies

Site fills an itty-bitty niche
Last December, Cecilia Sayre went to a shower for a single mom who had recently adopted a child from China.

Though she wanted to find a gift that held personal meaning and cultural relevance, she was stymied by the lack of selection.

"Though Chinese pajamas are gorgeous, a person only wants so many," she said.

What really inspired her, though, was love.

"I couldn't help thinking how fortunate these babies are to have families who want and love them," she recalls. "But on the other hand, it's really these adoptive families who are so truly blessed."

So Sayre, a 40-year-old South Tampa mother of three, and a former lawyer for Carlton Fields and Marriott Hotels, took on the cause.

She began combing the Internet for everything from crib bedding to artwork to diaper bags to teeny tiny T-shirts. Her Web site, will offer a range of nursery, clothing, stationery and gift items for adopted Chinese children assimilating to American culture.
