What's Next?

My husband lost his job, and I panicked and embezzled money from my employer to pay our bills.  I was convicted of a felony.  I've never had any trouble with the law.  I am a mother of three with a still unemployed husband.  What does life look like after conviction?  Is there hope?  Do people ever find a decent job again?  What steps do you take to move forward?  I feel alone and scared.
