I and my firstborn daughter, have been alienated from my other children, her half sisters and little brother. This situation has existed for almost 10 years. My firstborn daughter a wonderful human being, is pregnant. And the both of us were wondering how to formulate, if at all, the story/version of the other sisters and brother.

Definitely don't lie about it, I'd never recommend that. Try to be as truthful as possible, but at the same time, you don't want to be seen badmouthing anyone. I believe in telling truth, but at the same time, sometimes the entire truth isn't appropriate, so you just have to use your judgement.

There is a story in the bible about king Solomon and the 2 mothers fighting over a child; His judgement was to cut the child in half, and of course the "real' mother said...please no, give the child to the other woman. I am that person. And I/we, my daughter and I have been through all the stages of grief concerning the separation, and we have come to a quiet place in terms of that. But we/I do have a question as how to proceed with the next generation. Do we tell him or her that there is more family, what if we don't and the child feels lied to?

PAS - Parental Alienation Syndrome?

I guess it depends on the surrounding circumstances and why you have not been able to do anything about it. And what has been happening. More details might be helpful, because it might make a difference as to how you explain it if at all.
