your welcome. The time magazine article links to some of the scientific articles they reference, but two of them you have to pay to view. The best one is this (though it uses a lot of scientific language which I mostly can't understand.

I know this may offer little to no comfort, but recently they have done studies on the brains of pedophiles. The results may answer a lot of the "Why" but again, not very comforting. It turns out, the part of their brain that handles sexual attraction and maturity is entirely underdeveloped. As though that part of their brain stopped maturing at a very young age, and that is why they find young children so much more appealing than people their own age. I think they are still trying to figure out why this underdevelopment occurs. They cannot be rehabilitated. There is no surgery to fix that area of the brain (as of yet)
I am sorry you had to go through this, but proud that you chose to protect those two girls. I am about to have a daughter and will be on the lookout for any warning signs with her.
