My dear Sisters and Friends:

Over the last two and a half years, it has been my pleasure to help transform an infant blog into the largest crossdresser/transgender support website in the world. When I was asked by Vanessa Law, the site’s creator, to become the first ever Managing Ambassador, we had about 500 members. Since that time, we have had over 23,000 members sign up. Some have stayed a long time and some were here for just a blink but this site has indeed made an impact.

Now today, with a warm yet tearful heart, I’m announcing that I am stepping down as Managing Ambassador. God has told me I have done good work here for 3 years and it is time to pass the torch. Thus, I turn over the leadership of Crossdresser Heaven to Maria Darlov and her team of ambassadors. I am going to let Maria tell you who the new Leadership team is.

I want to thank you all for the love and support you have shared with each other and with me every day over the last three years. I want to thank Vanessa for her friendship and strength over the years as well as the trust she has shown me by giving me the opportunity to do more for this community than I had ever imagined. I want to thank you, the members of Crossdresser Heaven, for making this site someplace truly unique on the web and for wanting to protect it and keep it that way. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank every Ambassador past or present. Each one of you has made an impact on the site but more importantly on my life. Your love and caring will continue to do so. Last but certainly not least, I want to thank my wife and our three kids for their support of me here and in my journey overall, I love you!

I am not completely leaving the site as I will be staying on as an adviser and member. I’m simply stepping down now to give me the time to seriously pursue my next venture which is a Church Consulting Business for Congregational Vitality. I am going to go and TRY to create a bigger footprint and reinvigorate churches, mosques, and synagogues to help keep them from closing their doors. For those that can relate to this and know this side of me, God is calling me to do something bigger and he is done waiting. As some of you may know, God spared my dad’s life from cancer last year. He had been preparing my wife and me to do this work through planting the seeds via our work in our previous church for 7 years and with our outreach and community involvement projects. Then, a month ago, he called me to start working with my new church on building our footprint in the community and reaching out. I have a lot of research and learning to do but the time has come for me to follow this new path.

Vanessa is excited to be working with the new leadership team and seeing what new directions and vision they bring. But most of all, you can spread the word and scream it to the mountain tops, Crossdresser Heaven will live, move on, and continue to be the best crossdresser/transgender support site in the world under Maria’s Leadership and the love and support that you, our members, give every day.

God Bless & Thank you all for the friendship, love, and support you have given me,

From Maria Darlov:

Exceptional Voice
     As Codille just wrote, I have been selected to take the torch she has carried these past years. It is an honor I am truly grateful she and Vanessa consider me capable of handling. Crossdresser Heaven has been my home for almost a year and a half now.  It has made a huge difference in my life. I have met so many great people since coming here and I hope I have helped some along the way. Every member here holds a special place in my heart.

          Kensie:  Will lead a team to gather and organize the records of our origins and the first ten years of our history, as well as reorganizing the Places portion of the site and helping Captain Di on the editing team.

Thank you Codille for all your efforts to help this site grow, and be a safe haven where we can express ourselves freely and openly. Personally it has helped me clear my sense of isolation, that I am not alone in having these desires, and that there are many ordinary people out there sharing our wonderful desire to look and feel gorgeous. If only for a brief time, or the start of a new life transitioning I am thankful to have interacted with new friends across the globe. Congrats Maria, and thank you, and all the ambassadors for keeping this… Read more »

Dearest Codille………it has been a pleasure and a great honor fors me to have shared the walk for a while. I will miss you. I too will be bowing out due to another heart attack that has rendered me incapable of doing much and the prognosis is grim. That is ok….had a good life. I will still monitor the site until the end of day. With love……..

meant the world to me. Just a few years ago I never imagined I would be involved
