In related child protective proceedings pursuant to Family Court Act article 10, the father appeals, as limited by his brief, from so much of an order of the Family Court, Richmond County (DiDomenico, J.), dated June 13, 2007, as, after a hearing, granted the petitioner's application to vacate that portion of a prior order of the same court dated November 17, 2006, trial discharging the child Jacqueline H. to him, and directed that Jacqueline H. be returned to the petitioner's custody.

(Docket Nos. N-01852-05, N-01853-05, N-01854-05)
ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed as academic, without costs or disbursements.
Inasmuch as the only child who is the subject of the appeal has since been returned to the father, the appeal has been rendered academic and under the particular circumstances here, an exception to the mootness doctrine does not apply (see Matter of New York City Dept. of Social Servs. v Diognes T., 208 AD2d 844; cf. Matter of Ifeiye O., 53 AD3d 501).
FISHER, J.P., ANGIOLILLO, DICKERSON and BELEN, JJ., concur.
